    I just had a few support cases where VirtualBox 5.1 stopped working on Ubuntu with secure boot enabled because the vbmodule isn't signed. Maybe they should look into that for the next release

    Yes but it's not as fast or as advanced as VMware's and now that Wine is starting to support DX 11, Wine is more advanced compared to both of them.

    It would be nice if more development effort was made in VM guest drivers but I think a lot of the development drive behind implementing Direct3D was for the customers using Macs and wanting to virtualize Windows for 3D purposes. Due to the stagnant nature of OpenGL support in macOS (not supporting newer versions), a Direct3D 11 to OpenGL mapping used for the vGPU driver would be very difficult without compute shader support and a re-write for Metal would apparently be too much work.
