I'm likely going to have to run some windows software for a job I have coming up and I'll need to use a vm to do this. I'm more or less completely new to vm's though and I'm having difficulty determining which one is best for my needs.
I've done some looking around, but all the articles I can find on the subject are either old enough that I don't trust them to have up to date information, or are unclear on the differences between vm's beyond the open-source/not open-source divide. My understanding is that the choice is really between virtualbox and vmware (though if anyone has other suggestions I'm all ears). Can anyone give me a basic rundown on any pros and cons between the two?
