Mostly, QEMU because there hasn't been any guest OS that would not have worked with it yet.

I don't really have an iron in this fire, so I'm not voting. However, virtualbox has always been enough for my casual needs.

Why no mention of Virtual Machine Manager (aka virt-manager) or AQEMU?

Not really. There are two products: The well known "Oracle VM Virtual Box" and "Oracle VM server for x86".

The latter, based on XEN, is reaching end of life and is being replaced by "Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager" that leverages kvm.

Last year, after 10 years using Xen on Debian in my lab I migrated to Proxmox. At its core it's Debian and KVM, but there are extensive libraries and UI implemented by Proxmox for VM management. I would vote for that if it were an option.

I would vote both QEMU and KVM if I could. Since discovering KVM and rediscovering QEMU, this is the obvious choice. It covers all needs and does things as easy (if you want) as any virtualbox or similar stuff.

I've used Virtualbox in the past, but it holds nothing on KVM/QEMU, so there is no reason not to use KVM/QEMU instead.

Yea. VirtualBox is slow and just not very good. qemu does has GUI frontends if someone doesn't want to use CLI. I really don't get why VirtualBox is so popular. Even on Windows free bundled Hyper-V is much better.
