It only works if you have a quite recent CPU with 64-bit & virtualization built-in. VMware however supports running 64-bit guests on 32-bit AMD CPUs without VT-x/AMD-V.
I think this is one of the next steps in the roadmap. Nevertheless, the virtualbox team is demonstrating with every release that big changes are going on, and that the project is quite active. I see them challenging vmware itself in a not so far future... Anyway this last version can be very useful to some of us; we'll see what the next ones will bring =)
