    I don't think it's fair to compare sandboxes to system virtualization. They do things differently and I like/use both. So I chose other as none of the choices reflect my setup. I am a paid SBIE user but we are not limited to just the one and the choices should be a bit broader IMO. Maybe add FBWF, faronics (sp?) and a few others with a mixture of choices using both sandboxes and system virt solutions...but for now I find the poll to be lacking many relevant potential combinations...
    *Update:
    and of course now I see multiple votes are allowed so part of my argument is moot.. lol but you are missing some solutions either way :p For instance I use the FBWF in my gaming system but Shadow Defender on my other build.

    Firejail, Apparmor for containment on Linux, as well as Sandboxie on Windows if I were to use sandboxie again.

    I agree...listing Shadow Defender is making some mess in classifiction/comparision. Shade, SafenSec, SecuBrowser, SurfCanister...yes they can be listed but not Shadow Defender.
    BTW...I'm using SHadow Defender and Wondershare Time Freeze on two diferent mashines.

    Sandboxie paid and Shadow Defender. It is very difficult to compare them as they are not really doing the same job. Sandboxie Achilles' heel is its constant dependence on its developers (a simple MS update might break it requiring a quick fix, which has been always performed in no time). Its advantages are many: not only the sandbox isolates malware, but its restrictions work perfectly as an effective anti-executable. No need to reboot.

    Shadow Defender protects at partition level against changes to the system, although it has no effect in countering malware, therefore unless other layers are used, private information can be stolen. Rebooting the system is often a pain, and information can be lost if one forgets to commit.It is very rarely affected by MS updates, a very stable program. I like them both a lot, but if I really had to choose one, I think for my environment and usage Shadow Defender would be my choice, although I use Sandboxie all the time and Shadow Defender every other day.

    Sandboxie free in my VMs when I need to do some tests.

    I don't run any sandboxing software on my host system (Chrome is sandboxed, but that's because of Chromium).

    Thats very true. Personally, I use Sandboxie and Shadow defender for totally different purposes. I use Sandboxie for security and to sandbox programs and files, and use Shadow defender for light virtualization of the system when I want to test a program that doing so works best under SD than doing it under SBIE. And also for testing changes in my system, and then to see how this changes affect the system.
