Might just be me, but I'm sure VirtualBox will win, but I've NEVER managed to get that application to work correctly for me. By comparison, qemu w/ kvm works so absolutely flawlessly for me.

VirtualBox holds my collection of hundreds of Linux distros and historic OSs together quite reliably

Why no hyper-V?

My employers use Microsoft Hyper-V to host linux VMs and it works well enough.

I vote for VirtualBox, because it's the only emulator I tried that I could actually make work.

QEMU (fairly new user of it), though I still run Virtualbox on most of my systems.

Definitely VirtualBox. Love the tool. I have had issues here and there, but have managed to run a variety of OSs including Kali, CentOS, Fedora, Scientific Linux, and Android. I have a Windows machine at work and I prefer VirtualBox to Hyper-V, but for some reason could not get virtualBox to work on Windows 10.
