Could you be more specific about what you want to run in VirtualBox? Basic roscpp? Navigation? Rviz? Gazebo? etc

In general ROS programs run fine inside Virtual Box, except for programs which use hardware accelerated video. The effectiveness of accelerated video depends a lot on your setup, host and hardware.

The other thing to be careful about when working in a VM is the availability and connectivity of the networking. The problems are mostly about making sure that you have configured things right, not that it won't work.
