Virtual Machines

Notes on virtual machines:

  • VMWare does a better job than VirtualBox, but VirtualBox is more widely used because it doesn't need to be relicensed every year and can be moved from machine to machine without a license key.
  • I typically create user 'user', password 'user' for VMs that I distribute.
  • Docker also runs VMs, based on Linux. I'm not quite sure how.
  • Kubernetes orchestrates multiple VMs. However, I prefer Vagrant.
