It's exactly the other way round. Virtualbox is a painless out of the
box solution satisfying a lot of needs. Only if you have a very
special need, consider to migrate to something less comfortable such as

And if virtualbox performs adequate you gain absolutely nothing from
those performance gains, but you'll lose all the out of the box features
virtualbox provides, such as file sharing without any effort.
