I need a few Linux virtual machines (Oracle VirtualBox .VDI), for various software development environments, all using only free software, so no copyright/piracy issues.
I could just make them myself, but am afflicted by congenial(*) laziness, and someone out there almost certainly has made them, as I am thinking of fairly standard development setups.
The thing is, I am unsure if virtual machines are actually apps. Sure, they contain apps, but they can be seen as being data for the VirtualBox app.
I am probably worrying needlessly, but thought that I would ask here before posting such a request. What's your verdict?
Btw, I am aware of the Vee Dee Eyes site, but it doesn't offer what I want (which is strange, as it is a common request), and, in any case, I would like a clear ruling as to whether such requests are on topic here.
(*) no, I don't mean congenital; I'm just happy to be lazy :-)
