Just an idea about virtualbox

I hope that you are all doing well today. My learning is proceeding well
with regards to NOVA and Genode. I truly do like this work and am excited
to start doing more as I get better familiarized with the inner-workings.
My particular interest is with NOVA + Genode + Seoul (or similar VMM) for
various work that I am looking into at the moment.
With that in mind, a thought had occurred to me and I wanted to ask the
group for your thoughts in this area.
As you know, there are a number of other open source hypervisors (Type 1
and Type 2) with on of them being Virtualbox (Oracle) that runs well as a
Type 2 hypervisor. My understanding is that Virtualbox is also reasonably
easy to port to other platforms as well. The power of Virtualbox is that it
is very mature at this point and I was wondering.
Would there be an advantage to have Virtualbox ported to Genode to run
The idea is that since it is already fairly mature, then perhaps it might
make a very stable and suitable VMM (in place of Seoul) so that Genode
(under NOVA) could run general purposes commodity OS's like Windows and
Linux. I am sure that this would be a lot of work, but it seems that that
might be an interesting idea.
Kind Regards and have a great day,
