I have a partition whose label is "common".

I could almost smack myself in the head. I had done that when I
used to dual-boot Windows / Linux (now you can see why I'm not a
fan of dual-boot, I guess! LOL!). I also used to dual boot SolydX
and SolydK distributions.

In my VMs, I do use the guest additions and have a shared directory
(necessity for what I need to do as well).

But that was one way I had shared data.

However, I still balk at dual-booting (like you balk at VMs :) )

Another option I've used for some years: a pocket-sized USB hard
drive with an i386 all-modules installation, which boots on
practically anything that isn't an ARM.

Can you clarify what you mean by the phrase "i386 all-modules
installation"? TIA

Question during installation: 'Do you want all driver modules or just
the ones that apply to this hardware' or something similar. On every
other occasion I go for 'just the ones needed'.
