VM options for peppermint....
« on: February 25, 2020, 02:35:39 pm »
I wish to try out a few other OS's, but don't want to kill my present installation. 
Since I don't expect to actually use the other OS's for a long period of time, VM seems to be the way to do it. 
What VM's options exist IN peppermint and which ones are recommended both for peppermint and in general.
Obviously a link to a how to for the suggestions would be very welcomed

VirtualBox is the best in any archetecure in my opinion and certianly easiest on Linux/ Peppermint.

Per Peppermint's small footprint design ethic, no VM software is part of the ISO @PrtnHPM. PCNetSpec was not a fan of making choices about software for the end users.
