Moved your topic here, as this isn't a request for support but for opinions. Hence moving it to chat
Personally I just use VirtualBox as, and you already mentioned this, you can easily install it from the repositories. And I need to be able to easily run all the various Linux Mint versions and editions, and as Linux Mint comes preloaded with VirtualBox guest additions it is just more sensible for me to use VirtualBox. Also, it just works
VMware may be better or not (I have no opinion on that), but it would require more work on my end. Pass.
If you do go for VirtualBox, remember to add yourself to the vboxusers group after installing it. You can do so easily with this command:
- Code: Select all
sudo usermod -aG vboxusers $(id -un)
