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.

I think the market is big enough for both to exist, no? One doesn't have to be the death of the other. Not that it couldn't happen, but it doesn't have to.

Windows Sandbox now has the ability to automatically launch an app or script in the sandbox.

Will there be a compatibility issue between the two programs? Will V1903 let Sandboxie onto the system and run along with the integrated Sandbox program? You know, will they play nice together? Food for thought.

Hi ritzter13 ,

The Windows Sandbox -as of now - looks like a VM inside the OS. It is invoked on-demand, so there is no interaction with Sandboxie.

Here's more info (from a third party site) : https://www.howtogeek.com/399290/how-to ... test-apps/

Regards,
Barb.-

Gave Windows sandbox a try. Sadly limited; and not a replacement for Sandboxie, which BTW didn't work well here with 19H1 latest Fast ring update.

Have rolled back to 1809

The article I ready suggested delaying the v1903 upgrade for a month maybe two. Waiting will give MS a chance to iron out some or most of the inevitable bugs.
