Hyper-V and Virtualbox is a 'no go' together on a Windows 8 PC

I just tried to run VirtualBox on my Windows 8 computer where I already had activated Hyper-V. That was a 'no go' - it borked out with missing VT-x support:

You simply can't run Hyper-V and VirtualBox simultaneously, as any application that uses the virtualization-specific instruction sets on the CPU (Intel VT-x in my case) does so alone and therefore locks other programs out of using them.

Too bad, but probably security-wisely good.
