What Virtual Machine Software Do You Recommend?

I just want to know what you recommend for virtual machine software. The poll will close in 3 days. Also drop down a comment why you like the specified virtual machine software the most. If you want to know what is my favorite virtual machine software, it's always VMware. I choose VirtualBox if the app or system software won't load, I'll try VirtualBox. If not, then 86Box is my best bet. Please note we are only talking about IBM PC compatible virtual machine software. :D

VirtualBox is my main, it's easy to use, and has a lot of support. I sometimes use VMWare for betas, tho not that much since you can set BIOS date back in VirtualBox using commands (although it is kinda annoying). I also use PCem for older betas like Windows 1.0 DR5, Alpha and Beta and also for Chicago betas. I'd also like to know how to use Hyper-V since it's interesting. :)

I would say VirtualBox if you're going to be using Windows virtual machines.VMware if you're going to use MacOS(not PPC)virtual machines(you would have to use the unlocker).QEMU PPC if you're going to use PPC(Older MacOS)virtual machines.Hope I could help!

Links for everything:
VirtualBox:https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
VMware(this is the free version I recommend you to use the pro though):https://www.vmware.com/products/worksta ... ation.html
Unlocker for VMware:https://github.com/paolo-projects/unlocker
QEMU PPC:https://www.emaculation.com/doku.php/pp ... or-windows
