    im was in past test vmware workstation and virtualbox good for testing os'es but now in era of bootable usb im dont know anybody who still use it
    anyway for good tests you need have at least 8Gb ram and virtualization in your AMD or Intel used for create virtual cores for virtual processor and as far i know virtual graphic card anyway it can detect your real cpu if im write something wrong show me my mistake

    I use about 27 VM's for support in various os's, sure beats dual booting.
    Original, the only way to play.

    I use VMWare to run a few OS's, the most used probably being Windows 95, I already have a dedicated Windows XP Machine.

    Docker > VM. Less disk space (exponentionally so if you have multiple with the same OS) and less overhead.

    Small problem : Docker allows the access to the machines via ssh, telnet or web (and web services) so basically it's possible to open a graphical session but it would not be the same as having a full system emulation.

    There are a lot of variables that affect VM performance. HT is just one of othe variables but it also depends on how the VM are configured.

    One of the variables that affect HT depends on the type of Hypervisor being used.

    If you are using lightweight virtual machines like VZ, VServer, etc, then it is quite obvious that HT would bring suitable benefits as these VM aren't actually tightly isolated and are more like running multi-threaded software.

    If you are using heavyweight virtual machines like KVM, Xen HVM, etc, then it is possible that HT will interfere with things e.g. when a VM is allocated two CPUs but ends up using one HT each on different cores.

    So, the best thing to do is still to test your setup to see what suits you
