  1. Why are VMs so slow?


    I've run Windows 7 in Oracle Virtual Box.
    I've run Windows 10 in VM Ware Workstation Player.

    The host runs fast. It's an i7-7700K.
    The VMs run slow.

    Why?

    :)

    Running your Browser in a VM?

    • Install VMware Player or Virtualbox, VMware being faster in my experience
    • Create a VM with sufficent RAM HD and all CPU cores
    • Install Ubuntu/Linux Mint/Debian or some lightweight distro with Xcfe or LXDE
    • Install VMware/Virtualbox tools
    • Almost any distro comes with Firefox
    • Install Ublock Origin/Noscript/Ghostery
    • Disable cookies with a whitelist/use private browsing.
    In my experience, running a browser through a VM can slow down scrolling smoothness, video playback and increase ping delay
