Creating a VM has started to get unwieldy… so we started back at the basics 🛠

basicvm tool automates downloading Linux images, and creating headless virtual machines for you. It’s the best way to make dev environments on macOS (supporting both Intel and Apple Silicon architectures).

basicvm is basic 😉 and lightning fast ⚡️; in fact if you want to install, pull a linux image, and run your first virtual machine, it will take less than one minute! (making a new virtual machine takes about 10-15 seconds).
