Just curious as I've used both & generally found Player easier to work & live with in ways that suit me, but still I wonder what other opinions may be expressed in comparison...mostly as regards any hogginess and/or speed of execution. I am setting up a PC for a friend with a fresh installation of Ubuntu Mate that is up to date as the host OS & this will have a windows guest OS with attached physical partitions & the guest OS VM will not need to be changed by him at all. Does anyone here have some personal experiences with both of these & may wish to share thoughts & opinions ?? Thanks.
