Boxes is the pre-installed solution for VMs on Workstation, but it
doesn't get as much attention as it should.
Currently development composes of F24 don't even work in Boxes on
so users who'd like to test F24 in the default VM app are out of
It clearly violates one of the release criteria:https://fedoraproject
The problem is that even though Boxes is the default VM app in
Workstation it's not among recommended Fedora virtualization tools
criteria is referring to: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Getting_star
Fedora QA also use solely virt-manager and they only test Boxes from
time to time to make sure the basic functionality works.
Boxes have been here for some time, it's our default solution, we
should make sure it's the best working desktop VM on Fedora and work
with Fedora QA on ways to improve the test coverage. I think we
start with adding Boxes to recommended virt tools. Does anyone have
idea if it needs to go through some committee or is it just "go ahead
and edit" wiki page?
An addition to the original message: today I stumbled on a comment from
a user who was very disappointed with F24 Beta saying that even basic
things such as starting up an app didn't work for him in F24.
In the end, it turned out that it was because he was running Fedora in
GNOME Boxes. It was difficult to explain him that Fedora doesn't run
well in our default desktop VM tool and that F24 Beta is actually a
great release, he should give it another try in a different tool.
