Underappreciated software

I have always used VirtualBox and never thought about other software for the same task. Just installed VMware and HOLY FUCK it's superior in every aspect.

Any other software that is clearly superior to its "popular" counterpart?

Well, time to try kvm then.

I've also been using Virtualbox for years now. I remember I tried VMware once or twice and had bad performances on Windows guests.. though I probably didn't set it up correctly.

Why do you like it more?

and one day you will grow up, learn a little bit more about computers and discover qemu/kvm

I've been playing with for like an hour. The performance is clearly superior with the same "specs" of the VM. Using ubuntu with unity DE in virtualbox was painfully slow, while in VMware is smooth. Install time was clearly faster too.

Not op but I like it because you get fill out half your settings and it will work. As a hypervisor (ESXi) the only thing I dont like about VMw is that I can't administer from a linux machine.

The fact that qemu/KVM is superior.

not that guy but

people too stupid to use qemu-kvm

If you actually learned how to use it, you'd realise just how much better it is than vmware in every way.

QEMU is good but its not better than VMware. Also any thing is good if you learn to use it.

QEMU is good but its not better than VMware.
qemu is more feature complete than vmware as an OS based hypervisor, in terms of advanced features like better hardware passthrough and networking configuration capabilities.

qemu is also more scriptable for feeding your vms automated commands since it itself runs on a cli base.

And to top it off, qemu is not only free as in beer but also free as in FOSS. Please stop giving your opinion on things that you don't understand well enough to discuss properly.

Such as?

Examples of?

Networking configuration
Do tell

Qemu is more scriptable
In what manner?

runs itself on a cli base
Just like VMware, and even Hyper-V

Vmware kernel does not support backing and delta images, does not allow software raid, and does not have a useful implementation of ssd caching. Granted two of these things aren't specific to kvm itself but to Linux.

Yup, virtualbox sucks.

If you're referring to workstation, it's overall a better product than VirtualBox. Esxi is the easiest to use of the bare metal hypervisors.

@Dreamworx
not op
For it's the ability to easily give vms raw disk access. Installed linux on a few drives and put them in old comouters a few times because installing linux takes too long while the drives are in the said old computers.

you can use any kernel you want in fact all you need enabled is Fusion MPT for it to work.
