Yes, windows. I shouldn't have any hardware liminations, I use a ryzen 3700x, 48GB ram. I also heard about VMware. What do you think is better?

If you're on Windows, the two big options are Hyper-V and VirtualBox. Both of them have their pros and cons. If you're gonna use Windows in a VM, I'd use Hyper-V. If you're gonna use Linux, use VirtualBox.

 

That said, Windows isn't a good virtualization host. If you are doing anything more than spinning up a quick VM to test something, you should probably transition your host machine to Linux and use Redhat KVM and QEMU. Something like VirtManager is a good way to manage everything, and has a ton more features in comparison to anything on Windows.

Hello, I wanted to know what free VM software to use?

Maybe VirtualBox? I don't know

Do you have any sugestions?

You could also try QEMU or VMware

My Laptop: A MacBook Air 

My Desktop: Don’t have one 

My Phone: An Honor 8s (although I don’t recommend it)

My Favourite OS: Linux

My Console: A Regular PS4

My Tablet: A Huawei Mediapad m5 

Spoiler

QEMU is more advanced but it is good

So your options are:

  • Vmware Player (free, but a bit gimped with some features
  • Virtualbox (FOSS, prety easy to start with and can get more advanced)
  • QEMU (CLi based, pretty advanced)

Oh look, I finally found out how to add a signature

Ok, I use Hyper-V. In the "Quick VM maker" it's downloading windows 11 enterprise, but it's 18,49GB. I'll need to wait...
