Virtualization made simple

About Boxes

A simple GNOME application to view, access, and manage remote and virtual systems.


Browse your machines

Customize at ease

Intuitively set your machine preferences and monitor its performance.

Keep it simple

Get things working out of the box with very little input.



  • While virt-manager does a very good job as a virtual machine management software, its very much tailored for system administration and virtual machines. Boxes on the other hand is targeted towards typical desktop end-user who either just want a very safe and easy way to try out new operating systems or new (potentially unstable) versions of her/his favorite operating system(s), or need to connect to a remote machine (home-office connection being a typical use-case). For this reason, Boxes does not provide many of the advanced options to tweak virtual machines provided by virt-manager. Instead Boxes focuses on getting things working out of the box with very little input from user.

    That said, Boxes shares a lot of code-base with virt-manager project, mainly in the form of libvirt, libosinfo and qemu.
