VirtualBox is free and open-source software for running virtual machines on your computer. VirtualBox is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Please see our installation directions for Windows and Mac, linked below.

The virtualization software, known as a hypervisor, allows you to run Windows, macOS, and Linux guests in virtual machines (VMs), a type of software-based environment that simulates a full hardware platform. The x86 hypervisor functions as an abstraction layer on top of the underlying physical hardware to present virtual hardware resources to the virtual machine.
