The best virtual machine tools for Windows: Run a PC inside your PC

You'll find that Windows virtualizers differ significantly in terms of orientation, features, operation, and costs. This can actually be a good thing as it means that pretty much all programs are continually patched in order to keep up-to-date with the latest versions of operating systems such as Windows, Linux, or MacOS.

This article was translated from German to English, and originally appeared on pcwelt.de.

Oracle VirtualBox 7.x Due to its extensive features and good user guidance, the open-source software VirtualBox is a great option for private users, freelancers, and even companies. VirtualBox is also the only truly cross-platform virtualizer, which is offered free of charge for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS with an almost identical scope of services.

Since version 7, VirtualBox significantly revised its interface with improved menus and buttons making it easier to use. In addition, window contents are easier to recognize on high-resolution monitors. Further optimizations concern 3D graphics support when using Windows and Linux as guest systems as well as surround speaker systems. VirtualBox's fi

Apple's pitch for the Vision Pro couldn't be more different than the Meta Quest
It's easy to groan when Apple describes the Vision Pro as a "spatial computer." Isn't it just a high-end mixed reality headset? To a degree, yes. You can play games, create content and be productive on a much cheaper device like the $299 Meta Quest 2. And if you're a professional who needs to get serious work done, wearables like the Quest Pro and Microsoft's HoloLens 2 can already handle some of those duties. There's not much point to buying Apple's offering if you just want a refinement of the status quo.

However, it would be wrong to say that the Vision Pro is just a faster, prettier version of what you've seen before. In many ways, Apple's headset concept is the polar opposite of Meta's — it's building a general computing platform that encompasses many experiences, where Meta mostly sees its hardware as a vehicle for the metaverse. And Microsoft's HoloLens is courting a completely different audience with different needs. So, Apple already stands out from the herd simply by embracing a different mixed reality philosophy.

Google Meet makes the picture-in-picture experience far more useful
Google Meet, the company's answer to Zoom and Microsoft Teams, just got an update that makes the picture-in-picture (PiP) feature far more useful. Specifically, a new set of controls makes it easier to multitask during a meeting while remaining present and participating in video conferences, according to Google's Workspace Update blog post.

With the picture-in-picture window open, there's now a control that lets you "raise your hand," use PiP while in meeting chat, turn captions on and off, resize the picture-in-picture view more effectively and access flexible layouts, the company said. Google shows exactly how it works in the GIF below, as a user drafts an email while still being able to see his colleagues and remain present in the video chat. Should you need to make a point, you can still raise your hand and access other controls. 

GoogleThat's a big change from the last version, which offered limited resizing options and a fixed aspect ratio. In addition, the previous controls only let you leave the meeting or turn the camera/microphone on and off. While a relatively small change, it makes the app far more useful from a productivity standpoint (or lets you play the
