I know a lot of folks use Oracle VM VirtualBox to run Oracle Linux VMs. I do this myself every day. The ability to run multiple machines with different operating systems on a laptop is incredibly helpful. For example, you can do Docker development in Oracle Linux on your Macbook. Or if you're running Linux as your main OS, you could have a Windows VM, maybe for some pesky corporate apps that won't run on Linux. The possibilities are just endless.
Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 was released this week, with a number of key features. Things like:
- Runtime disk encryption
- Drag and drop between nearly all host and guest combinations (including my typical Mac host->Oracle Linux guest setup)
- USB 3.0 support
- Headless launch support (say you need a local server VM running in the background!)
- Performance improvements with paravirtualization for newer Linux and Windows guests
