"VirtualBox for quickly initial new environment for testing"

Comentarios: I use VirtualBox to initial my testing environment for my shell script function which needs to run in Centos, RedHat, Debian and Ubuntu, I download the virtual OS and add into VirtualBox which alow me quickly verify my script and when I work with Kubernetes, it already support installation environment as Virtual OS and we use VirtualBox to host it.

Puntos a favor: With VirtualBox, I easily create a test and dev environment for different OS, it supports all type of OS from Window, Ubuntu, Centos. VirtualBox Guest system is quickly created and start and I could share data between Host OS and Guest OS including copy/paste, disk sharing and drag-drop. VirtualBox consume very little resource and is able to host multiple Guest OS at same time, it is an excellent feature when we want to test our script in different OS

Contras: Using VirtualBox is quite complex to setup Guest OS, special to enable access to Host OS hardware such as Printer, switch between Host OS and Guest OS have delayed time

"A good free alternative software for machine virtualization"

Comentarios: My overall experience with VirtualBox is satisfying, it solves my problems more than enough. I mainly use it to run Windows on a Mac, because of some softwares specifically designed for Windows. It required a few tweaks until I was satisfied with performance, and although sometimes it gets really laggy, I can do what I need to do.

Puntos a favor: Despite being a free software, it is very powerful tool with lots of customizations and can do pretty much the same as the other competitors. It is also open-source which is really cool, democratizing knowledge and technology for all. It gets regular updates and is very well documented, and you can find a very helpful and engaged community.

Contras: Despite the installation being simple enough, it demands a little patience to configure your virtual machine. There's a lot of customizations and if you are not a heavy user it can be quite a challenge. Thankfully, there is a lot of tutorials to follow, but, in order to set the best optimal configuration you need'll some computer systems knowledge.

"VirtualBox Review"

Comentarios: My personal experience with it could be both satisfactory and disappointing, honestly. On the personal side, I'd say almost flawless, but on the professional side, it's not what I'd rely on, but again, you get what you pay for!

Puntos a favor: VirtualBox is open-source, easy and super fast to install and start, and it's free as well. It helps you test any OS in a few steps and switch between the operating systems you're running easily and swiftly. It's not exclusive to only one operating system.

Contras: If you just want to test operating systems and not go in-depth, VM VirtualBox would be okay. However, if you'd like to use it more in-depth, you'd find a few issues. Some computers do not allow the installation of a Virtual Machine software without changing the BIOS, and this, of course, isn't something everyone can do. Some features aren't supported without installing add-ons. Also, sound drivers aren't available. It takes a while to come up and if your computer isn't good on the specs side, you might have a laggy and slow experience. Changing the size of disk storage could be an issue, but such issued were paid attention to with newer versions (5.2). If you use the virtual OS you're running as a main drive or you rely on it for professional purposes, this could be a total disaster as you'd face countless network issues that'd hold you back. However, again, to be fair, these issues would be faced only if you go deep, but if you just run virtual OS for fun, or for simple usage, you'd have nothing to worry about.

"VirtualBox, The little brother to the Workstation. "

Comentarios: The ability to spin up and test instances of our application and also new flavours is the primary business purpose and virtual box ticks all thos boxes is a great asset to have to meet the business goals.

Puntos a favor: Have been using VirtualBox to spam new distributions of linux and other open source operating systems and also use Virtual box to deploy our application as well and we use it as a benchmarking mechanism tool.

Contras: The least thing we like about this is the amount of compute it takes to run the application on the slight less specked machine and it does a take on the battery life, otherwise the application is good.
