Hi Fajar,

Libvirt takes care of sound and "Copy & Paste" function.  The developers 
already know those problem.  I contacted one of them about 3 months ago.  He 
informed me that "Copy & Paste" may be solved by the 3rd/last quarter this 
year.  But nothing has been mentioned on sound.

Are you aware any alternative of VirtualBox other than VMWare?  Thanks
