Unfortunately the new Ubuntu Netbook interface (called Unity), requires
3D accelerated graphics to work properly. You could try to enable 3D
graphics for the virtual machine in VirtualBox, if your host has a good
display card and drivers it should work ok.
Otherwise, you could select a Gnome desktop by choosing it on the login
screen just after you have chosen the username.
What we'll do for the next release is work with the Qimo project to
include a child-friendly gnome desktop that wouldn't require any fancy
hardware. In the meantime, apologies for any inconvenience!
