    Choosing an OS can be hard – There’s only so much desk space! But a super ultrawide display can help with that.. And of course, we had to bring it to its logical conclusion.

    Why not use a thread ripper? More cores per “machine”

      I'm a new Hackintosh user, MacOS dual booted with Windows normally instead of how it is done here. I came to this video slightly hoping you found some crazy, janky, but functional solution for the problem of Nvidia drivers not existing for the newest version of MacOS

                Do you use Windows or MacOS on your computers?

                  Wouldn't a 14- or 18-core setup be better than 16 cores (or 12 for that matter)? That way you would get 6 or 8 dedicated cores for the VMs, and 2 for the hypervisor.

                          That is freaking cool!!! The closest I ever got to this was running “parallels” on Mac. Man if there was a stream lined way to set this up man I’d be for it!! 👍

                            So, when you say you split the CPU and RAM between windows and macOS, do you mean the Linux host doesn't have any ressources?

                              Or is it that this kvm is a type-1 hypervisor (doesn't require a host OS)?

                              It took a few vids but I love the little side comments we all think, he just says it outloud.

                                                  Hope they do a mac virtualization video that meticulously walks through the process. The old videos had too many skipped steps and were hard to follow.
