Multipass Alternatives

    Multipass is described as 'lightweight VM manager for Linux, Windows and macOS. It's designed for developers who want a fresh Ubuntu environment with a single command. It uses KVM on Linux, Hyper-V on Windows and HyperKit on macOS to run the VM with minimal overhead' and is an app in the Network & Admin category. There are more than 50 alternatives to Multipass for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, BSD and Android. The best alternative is VirtualBox, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Multipass are QEMU (Free, Open Source), VMware Workstation Pro (Paid), KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) (Free, Open Source) and VMware Workstation Player (Free Personal).
