I'd like to share a VirtualBox image with other developers, similar to this question: How to share a VirtualBox image?
There seem to be three basic answers to that question:
- Copy the entire VM folder, and share the copy
- Clone the VM, and share the clone
- Export the VM, and share the exported files
Unfortunately, I'm a little unclear on the differences between these methods. What are their pros/cons? Do they all accomplish exactly the same task, or are there differences in the "copies" that you get in each case?
