Nitrux, by default, uses OpenGL (3.1) acceleration as the rendering backend, this is to provide users of a great experience when they are running the distribution in Live mode on their computers. This default setting affects the performance in VirtualBox since the 3D rendering is entirely software based. We do recommend that in this case, testers use XRender instead. We also suggest that users don’t attempt to install the guest additions from the VirtualBox Guest ISO or install the package using APT and this is because the Linux kernel since version 4.16 does already include the video driver and related modules.
