KVM Desktop Setup Ideas

But there is in no way the general expectation that a Type 1 hypervisor is and should also be capable of being a daily driver.
This is where you go off the rails. Since this is common and everyone knows that this is a normal expectation, why would you state something that you know can't be true?
People need desktop virtualization all of the time. And in the modern market, there is essentially no reason to ever look at the only good Type 2, VirtualBox, because it is not nearly as good as Hyper-V or KVM. It's not as fast, or not as safe, and certainly not as easy.
The only reason anyone still considers Type 2 is because some people want Windows Home, and there is no Type 1 option.
I can see for Gamers who also need to do some VMs they may not want the Hyper-V overhead and would aim for type 2.... I hae no idea how much overhead Hyper-V actually introduces though.
I thought that at one point, but it is essentially zero. Gaming is fine with it.
So you run games in a guest VM?
With Hyper-V and Windows 10, your Windows 10 installation becomes the management domain for Hyper-V.
So no, it's not a VM.
It's a VM.

So following on from the Other thread.
Looks like i'm heading to the Install KVM, setup a Linux VM and use that to manage the KVM server from that.
