Welcome to our guide on how to How to install latest Virtualbox on Ubuntu and Kali Linux. VirtualBox allows you to run more than one operating system at a time. This way, you can run software written for one operating system on another (for example, Windows software on Linux or a Mac) without having to reboot to use it.

Virtualbox

Since you can configure what kinds of “virtual” hardware should be presented to each such operating system, you can install an old operating system such as DOS or OS/2 even if your real computer’s hardware is no longer supported by that operating system.Other virtualization platforms are VMware and KVM on Linux.

Virtualbox allows you to:  

  1. Running multiple operating systems simultaneously. VirtualBox allows you to run more than one operating system at a time. 
  2. Testing and disaster recovery. Once installed, a virtual machine and its virtual hard disks can be considered a “container” that can be arbitrarily frozen, woken up, copied, backed up, and transported between hosts.
  3. Infrastructure consolidation. Virtualization can significantly reduce hardware and electricity costs. Most of the time, computers today only use a fraction of their potential power and run with low average system loads.

  1. Hi…I'm very new to Linux…I'm confused about when installing inside kali 2.0, Kali's official site says not to edit the original sources.list, so for the first step in your tutorial does that mean I have to create a new .list if I want to correctly install this inside kali without breaking it?

  2. I realize it probably sounds completely ridiculous what I'm asking…please go easy on me…if there is some more reading I haven't looked at yet, could you please just point me in that direction? Not looking for you to solve issue for me…thanks.

  3. I'm also intimidated by this and find many different approaches to installing virtual box on Kali 2.0 linux. I really don't want to mess up such a massive step.
