      I recently tried Gnome Boxes. I would say you are better off with VirtualBox. I personally prefer VMware Workstation, but VMware effectively killed the desktop products.

        I would suggest Linux KVM. It is far more stable than VirtualBox. USB passthrough in Windows VM is stable. Setup VM with virt-manager is similar to GUI in VirtualBox.

          I use USB passthrough successfully for updating the firmware of my phone with a Windows VM guest in VirtualBox 5.0.x.

              Last time I checked long time ago, USB pass through, unless you used some wizandry would not support hell a lot of devices. It only support usb mice/keyborads/disks. And doesnt do great job with it too.(good luck with 9 button mouse having all buttons recognised) Don't keep hopes high.
