VirtIO Drivers - Worth updating VMs

Not really. You have to download the new ones in the settings page for vm’s and then add them as a cd disc for the vm to see and you can update each appropriate driver. I only bother if I am experiencing a specific issue I want to resolve. 

You can also download it straight into the VM and extract the drivers from there.  That avoids any messing around with the VM settings.


That being said, if everything is working properly there usually isn't much reason to update the drivers.
