    Default VirtualBox vs VMware

    in your opinion which is better for a novice user , which will be more user friendly for running BT5r3

    thnx =)

    just a little bit about myself i found out about BT5 after becoming interested in internet security , i wan to find way to keep myself and my machine safe from harm. I am not a professional but i would like to learn as much as i can and maybe even contribute something worthwhile one day.

    also if you know any good forums pertaining to internet security that would also be helpful

    thnx in advice

    ^_^

    I personally use VMware Workstation and Fusion and don't have any complaints, of course these are not free. If you choose to go with VirtualBox you might want to keep in mind that previous version did not virtualize DEP correctly (not sure if it does now I didn't test it).

    I use VMware Workstation, buy a copy, you will have fun learning with it. And if you buy it, maybe you will be more motivated to stick with the learning process.

    hi
    the best thing in my humble point of view:
    try!! && find the best solution for your "needs" && for your "hardware-power"
    There is also the VMvare-player (free) as well as virtualbox (free)
    good choice ...
    bye

    Well, I come and I grew in a debianist enviroment, so I guess the linux people will know my answer..But is about you, so if newbie, I strongly suggest VMWare, specially if you come and grew within Windows eviroment, so go with it..Virtualbox has sometimes to be "tuned"..

    But as the other members wrote, they are very comfortable with VMWare..I would do as much as I can to avoid something that is not with GNU filosophy, but sometimes is necessary or if the occasion warrants it.

    Luck. (Windows user by need, Debianist by conviction)

    I am final, I am sorry, but it at all does not approach me. Perhaps there are still variants?

    I'm a VMWare Workstation fan myself...an older version but it works nicely for my needs. But as others have said, try both and see which one you prefer.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I like the Virtualbox, because VMware occurred in the past. I have used the BT in my desktop, not virtual. VMWare in BT is installed(not BT in VMWare).
    but VMWare is freezed during working. after exchanging Virtualbox, the problem is decscribed. of course it is not perfect but good.

    I use VirtualBox exclusively and have never had issues. Extremely easy to use for a novice. Plus it's free so you might as well try it out.
