    Re: Suggest some Light-weight OS to run in virtualbox on Ubuntu 20.04.2

    The peculliarity of VitualBox on Linux, is how it is implemented, and the dependecies. It compiles is own drivers as kernel modules and adds them to a new kernal version as the kernel version is updated. So it has deep hooks into the kernel for it's software virtualization to work.

    That is why the depends on it's package are things like build-essentials and the kernel headers. That is also why VirtualBox sometimes breaks on a Linux Kernel update...

    Yeah I can see pythin-is-python2 installed at this moment not python-is-python3. Is this because of virtual-box?
    Please note that earlier when i wrote python to run a python code it used to say something like python2 not installed. When i want to run python3 i had to use command python3. I also found python2 to be installed in my computer now, which I never did myself.
