How to Install Ubuntu in Oracle Virtual Box

Hello, here is a simple tutorial on how to install Ubuntu in oracle virtual box or a virtual machine. Ubuntu can be used in virtual box for many reasons for learning linux or for practical purposes. Using Linux on virtual machines is very ideal because of low ram consumption and can work perfectly on low configuration pc’s as well.

What Is a Virtual Machine?


A virtual machine is a software computer that, like a physical computer, runs an operating system and applications. The virtual machine is comprised of a set of specification and configuration files and is backed by the physical resources of a host. Every virtual machine has virtual devices that provide the same functionality as physical hardware and have additional benefits in terms of portability, manageability, and security.
A virtual machine consists of several types of files that you store on a supported storage device. The key files that make up a virtual machine are the configuration file, virtual disk file, NVRAM setting file, and the log file. You configure virtual machine settings through the vSphere Web Client or the vSphere Client. You do not need to touch the key files.
A virtual machine can have more files if one or more snapshots exist or if you add Raw Device Mappings (RDMs).
