By default, the screen resolution is capped at 800x600. To go higher, you need to install Guest Additions. Go to the Devices menu while the VM is running --> Install Guest Additions.

A 20MB or so file will get downloaded to your guest's desktop, open it up and install the Linux version.

Yeah, I've noticed. The fire, jiggly windows, and cube desktop work rather well though.
And I got neverball to run full speed. lol

Hmm....the cube desktop didn't work for me (the fire effect did though). Then again I had an ATI card back then, and ATI + Linux = failz0r, plus it was VirtualBox v2. Heck even Cairo Dock was lagging. I've yet to try it on my Nvidia card with the latest version of VB though, expecting a lot of improvements.

KDE still sucks on VB though, I download Kubuntu 9.10 and ran it on VB to find that the pixels would get all messed up at the loading screen oO
