12 This is the perfect use case for running containers on your development
13 machine. Just set up lxc/lxd/docker on your gentoo machine and start up an
14 ubuntu container in any of the runtimes. Works flawlessly, and you don't
15 have to reboot or run a heavyweight VM. Lxc/lxd are more suitable for long
16 running containers, docker would be great for containers that you spin up
17 and tear down whenever you need.
19 Give it a try.
