LXC/LXD containers are awesome for Windows VirtualBox users. It would allow creating a single Linux VirtualBox VM and then create multiple LXC containers (full-blown Linux machines) utilizing all the full resources of host Linux VirtualBox VM, keeping it always a clean image. Super efficient utilization of RAM and storage. No need to create multiple VMs for different Linux OSs.

    But the kernel is shared, right? So these aren't truly self-contained, independent machines. There are multiple userspaces sharing one kernelspace.

    @gronostaj yes, good enough for me as I hardly venture into kernel space :)
