VMWare causes the most obnoxious repeating beep sound, gets itself locked up, locks the mouse cursor inside its window, and keeps beeping even after I kill the task, forcing me to reboot.
Never had these issues with VMWare.

The mouse lock is only if you use it in full screen, if you use it within its windows frame then you can move the mouse whereever you want. You are within the frame, ALT+Tab changes apps in the guest OS, you move the mouse to the frame and press ALT+TAB, then the app change is on the host OS getting the VM in the background.

There is a key combination too, for going back to the host... but I do not remember which one, since I use it always in window frame and do not need it.

When I have the VM maximized, I have the Taskbar of my Windows 10 host, and then next by the taskbar of my guest OS. You have as bit less surface pixels available in the guest OS, but it works fine.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
