Can you tell what is difference between running Ubuntu in hyper-v and in virtual box?
I find virtalbox really slow
Can you suggest some good ways to run Ubuntu in windows 10?

You're probably right, Hyper-V will probably be more performant than Virtualbox. I don't spend a ton of time running VMs on Windows but from my own experience it does seem like it also just depends on your hardware. I suggested Virtualbox because it's relatively easy to set up but yes it can be quite slow depending on your hardware unfortunately. It's also an alternative if you have Windows 10 Home Edition, because apparently Hyper-V is not available for it.

If you really want to enjoy a linux bistro, install it right on your computer disk. Then you can still install Windows aside and choose where to boot at startup.
