  • Anybody use VirtualBox on here??

    Anybody??

    Virtualbox is hypervisor software that letss you run numerous virtual machines on one computer. The technical term for it is Virtualisation.

    You can add different Operating Systems on one computer. So with virtualbox you can have Linux, windows 7, windows 8 and other operating systems How does people find it?

    Personally ive got Ubuntu 20.04 on my virtualbox. Its alrite,not too bad!

      Ok............so what is your Host operating system? Windows and you have Fedora on it??

      Fedora is a linux distribution isn't it?? Some people say Linux is way better than windows and its more secure too.

          Ok. I might make the switch to Linux as well. Its open source and is more secure than windows.

          So do you use it on virtualbox?

            I have used it for some school projects. I wouldn’t use it for normal use though. Eats up all your memory. If you really want to use Linux just partition your hard drive and install it there.

              Yeh ot does eat up a lot of your memory. That's why I had my ram upgraded from 8 G to 16 G cuz I thought it would help me with my Ubuntu vm.

              Yeh u can even have a dual boot where u can choose which operating system you want to boot from Windows or Linux.

              What do u use windows or Linux?

                I primarily use Windows because of gaming.

                But I also use Mac OS a lot.

                Linux is awesome but I haven’t found a reason to switch to it yet.

                  Yeh windows is the most popular operating system out there and most software is based around that. Mac OS is the other primary operating system out there. I like Linux but I'm more comfortable with Windows most of the time. I'm just experimenting with Linux at the moment

                      I just like the look and feel of Windows. That's why i haven't switched to Linux yet!

                            I looked for more recent comparisons and articles but basically, viruses (basically) viruses on Linux are virtually non-existent in terms of your day to day performance

                            And even in gaming (which i know ZERO about) is done on Linux also
