I recently bought a maxed out iMac 5k (2019). I thought I would have some fun and start my software development project using Ubuntu via VirtualBox.
Here is a screenshot of my VirtualBox configuration:
So pretty much I made this post to mention... that when I maximize the window and set the scaling factor to 200%, the performance is horrible. Is this to be expected?
When I type the text significantly lags behind and there are often multiple repeated keystrokes (for example, I'll get hhhhheeeelllllooooooo) if I tried to type "hello."
When I set the resolution to something much lower within Ubuntu such as 2560 x 1600, the performance is awesome, but now my window is tiny relative to the actual screen of my iMac.
Am I missing some key configuration or were my expectations of running Linux in a virtual environment with high performance too high?
