      Description

      Linux: If facter is run as root, it uses virt-what to detect virtualbox via DMI information. Otherwise, it uses lspci output to detect virtualbox.

      Windows: via wmi

      Solaris: facter runs /usr/sbin/prtdiag and attempts to match several product names (including virtualbox) to each line of output until it finds something useful.

      Mac OS: facter uses system_profiler's boot_rom_version, which should be set to VirtualBox
