Oracle VirtualBox already supports Windows 11, macOS Big Sur and others…

One of the technologies that has marked the last few years of computing is virtualization. This technology allows us, in a simple way, to have several operating systems running (simultaneously) on the same machine, without any changes. This way we can have a single native operating system and virtualize the operating systems we want.

Recently a new version of VirtualBox has been released with support for Windows 11, macOS Big Sur and others…


VirtualBox is one of the free platforms that allows users the full potential of virtualization where we can build a system with all the technical characteristics, but in a non-permanent virtual way.

It is possible to virtualize systems such as Windows, Linux and even MacOS. In terms of features, we highlight the possibility of taking snapshots, sharing folders between the virtual and native systems, support for drag and drop and the ability to easily clone virtual machines.

New VirtualBox version 7.0.0 Beta 1

Oracle’s VirtualBox version 7.0.0 Beta 1 brings several important changes in terms of host operating system support. Virtualization software has finally gained support to run on Windows 11 as the host operating system. The previous version of VirtualBox, version 6.1.36, did not support Windows 11 hosts, although the Windows 11 guest model has been supported since version 6.1.28.

Support for Windows 11 is revealed in the user manual (PDF) of the new version. Along with Windows 11, the new VirtualBox 7.0 Beta 1 also gains support for macOS 11 (Big Sur) and macOS 12 (Monterey). On the Linux side, there is now support for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and 22.04 LTS as well as Debian 11.
