Not only because you always have to hit the right–Ctrl key on the keyboard, but because performance sucks, the screen size can’t be adjusted, and other features like shared folder support and mouse integration are not enabled.   If you have installed OpenSuse guest machine in Virtual Box and want to take advantage of guest additions software, then follow my slides below.
