    They should've added support for Linux kernel 5.5
    I'm using now Virtualbox 6.0.14 on Kubuntu 19.10 and I can upgrade the kernel to 5.5-rc1, but then Virtualbox machine will not start complaining about a kernel module.
    Since 5.5 is not supported even in this major version, upgrading Virtualbox to this new version is pointless for my problem.

      I've switched long time ago to libvirt... is there still any reason where VirtualBox offers any advantage?

        I think VirtualBox's graphic support is still better, other than that, no.

          Yup, the only (but really compelling) reason to use VirtualBox are its 3D support and its mouse integration support.

            Seamless mode?

              Virtual network shares, snapshots, USB 3, configurable vGPU RAM?

                - Support for hosts with up to 1024 CPU cores.
                Great, so in about 5 years it'll be obsolete!

                  Don't use beta and alpha kernels if you want support

                    They should have released kernel 5.5 first.
