 Looking into this a little more, it looks like there are open source
 implementations of both VMware and VBox guest tools available via the
 package manager.

 It looks like we could easily create a script to be run the first time a
 machine is booted up(maybe on the desktop, triggered by user) to install
 the appropriate tools.
 sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools open-vm-toolbox

 sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-guest-utils

 There may be some recommended packages that go along with that, not sure
 if installing both would conflict with each other or not. Now that I've
 posted the final vm, please test and provide feedback.
