Looks like you'll need to start innovating.

Nice! Some initial thoughts from this link:
  1. It only supports 1 sandbox, which can't be saved.
  2. There are quite a few system requirements, as opposed to "Sandboxie works on Windows 7+...there are no particular hardware requirements...Sandboxie needs only a small amount of memory".
  3. It's not clear if it has any settings/customization.
With that said, it's definitely a healthy competition (especially since it's built in) which is something Sandboxie badly needs in its decade old "compatibility maintenance only" mode.

I think it will spell demise for sandboxie, as they both seem to doing the same thing.
Sandboxie has been my software of choice for many years (Win7/Xp days?).
Windows sandbox seems to be making use of VT-X (hardware supported virtualization) for a non virtualization related workload.
It will be interesting to compare the internals of sandboxie, and windows sandbox.

Based on what I read so far about the Microsoft Sandbox, I prefer Sandboxie. lwc's comments are quite relevant.
