In this blog post, we will learn how to download and install VirtualBox on Windows 10.
What is VirtualBox
VirtualBox is a free, open-source general-purpose hosted hypervisor for x86 hardware developed by Oracle Corporation. Originally first developed by Innotech GmBH in 2007, Sun Microsystems acquired Innotek in February 2008, and then, in 2010, Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle Corporation.
It supports cross-platform operating systems; it can be installed on Windows, Linux, macOS, Solaris, and OpenSolaris.
VirtualBox is a Type 2 hypervisor that runs on an installed operating system, which is called the “host,” and the virtual machine that is running inside VirtualBox is called a “guest operating system.”
If you are running the Windows 10 operating system and want to install Linux Ubuntu, you can install VirtualBox and install Linux as a guest operating system. It is very useful for developers, programmers, system administrators, or personal computer users.
