VirtualBox version 4 was a complete memory hog on my machine, and when I asked about it on the forum I got a sh!tty response from the mod taking the p!ss out of my hardware, which was perfectly adequate for the very same guest machines when running VBox 3.

So I switched to VMWare, and so glad I did, it's so much better, and a nicer community too (just). Big bad red lost another customer.

^ I can claim the same situation happened with me too, not the community but the software itself.

IMHO Citrix Xenserver would have deserved to be a separate choice. It's more than 'just Xen', but from the choices presented I vote for Xen.

Exclamation Not in the running, but...

It's not in the poll, and I know a lot of folks aren't aware of this outstanding product, so I'm including it here (and maybe next year it will be included?) so others can be informed

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,

VirtualBox is just the best I think, voted for it again this year. We'll have to see what it's future is now the Oracle has it.

I think Bochs is probably not included because technically it's emulation, not virtualisation.
