If you're looking for freeware with basic requirements then you've got virtualbox
and if something more advanced then VMware

I personally prefer VBox if I am working on my Manjaro. But I like VMware due to its better GUI. In the end if you are using it to virtualize Kali Linux etc it doesn't matter. Both are quite good and cross platform (Windows/MacOS/Linux).

Only downside is that on Windows you can't use either if you are trying to use Docker as Docker enables Hyper-V which annihilates VirtualBox and VMware.

Vmware. Virtualbox is very buggy

Well, if you mean desktop virtualization, then I would def recommend virtualbox. It became very stable and professional the last years. It can def compete with vmware workstation. I was using vmware workstation myself many years before I switched to virtualbox. The main reasons were following:
- you will find better support on the internet for virtualbox (since its free and open source)
- its open source and you will know if it has some spying code there or not
- it has also very powerful command line interface (vboxmanage) which can be also very useful if you code some stuff / to automate stuff. Probs vmware will have that too, but again vbox you will find more info on the internet.
