Now that VirtualBox is installed on your Windows 11 computer, you can start creating virtual machines for any operating system you want to try out. This is a great way to use applications or software that is not supported by your main operating system, or to test new versions of operating systems before installing them on the main hardware computer. Remember that VirtualBox, like any other program, needs regular updates to maintain security and stability. Always check for updates and install them to ensure your virtual machine is running at its best. With VirtualBox installed on Windows 11, you discover the limitless world of possibilities that virtualization provides. Make sure you take full advantage of this powerful tool.

What is the main advantage of using VirtualBox itself?

VirtualBox is an open source software product for creating and managing virtual machines. Its main advantage is its versatility and the ability to run various operating systems on one physical computer without rebooting. In addition, VirtualBox is highly compatible with many guest operating systems, allowing users to experiment with different environments and configurations. An intuitive interface and advanced customization options make this tool accessible to both beginners and professionals. In addition, thanks to its open source, VirtualBox is regularly updated, which guarantees support for the latest technologies and security improvements.
