I have always enjoyed virtualbox better but I'm curious which VM software everybody prefers :)

Not sure....VMWare does the job best, but VirtualBox is less painful to use...

Same here.
At times Virtualbox will perform better than VMWare, other times stuff doesn't work in VB but will in VMWare.
Although I prefer VBs setting layout. It's a lot simpler and easier to set up virtualization and edit other things.

VMware Workstation. I think it is the advanced virtualization and it also supports 3D graphics. But some older operating systems like Windows 95 may not work well in VMware Workstation.

VMware Player, it works much more better on my HP Laptop and Asus Windows Tablet, but I use VirtualBox and VMware Fusion when I'm on OS X Yosemite on my HP laptop.
