I have an OSX box and I'd like to just get a fresh install of Ubuntu to use remotely over SSH. That's all. But I'd like to get that on the same box without in anyway altering my existing OSX environment (i.e. I want to just run an Ubuntu VM or Docker).

What's the simplest (fewest steps) way for me to do this?


VirtualBox with an Ubuntu Vbox Image.


Use Vagrant, it is a layer on top of VirtualBox and provides pre-made images called boxes, amongst them Ubuntu images.
