My Issues with Libvirt / Why I Kept VirtualBox

At work, we use VirtualBox to distribute and run development machines.  The primary reasons for this are:

  1. It is free (gratis), at least the portions we require
  2. It has import/export

However, it isn’t developed in the open, and it has a worrying tendency to print sanitizer warnings on the console when I shut down my laptop.

Can I replace it with kvm/libvirt/virt-manager?  Let’s try!
