    Talking A guide to "multipass" (tool to manage VMs, similar to LXD)

    multipass is a tool to manage VMs, similar to LXD that manages containers.
    multipass is a snap package, therefore, you can install on all distros that have snap support.

    Here is a practical guide on how to use multipass,

    How is multipass different/better than virsh + libvirt?

    Options are good. Would love a "better" virsh.

    A single command can get you boot a VM. It also comes with a repository of Ubuntu images ready to download and use.

    For example,

    Code:
    multipass launch -n myserver 16.04
    is only required to launch a VM called "myserver", running Ubuntu 16.04 (default: 1GB RAM and 2GB disk space).
