In my short time on the Fediverse, I've learned that most people, even complete strangers, are very friendly and will engage in conversation, short or prolix. I've found it really fun to just reach out and respond to statuses and see if I can make a new friend. Most follows I return in kind (why not?). It's just a fun, refreshing way to communicate, and I am grateful to be here.
@trwnh oh a fair point server booting suuuucks
@trwnh I think the looking glass option is also quite promising especially if you are going to actually be using the Linux workstation part
@trwnh hmm, yeah I guess having a windows VM is the best solution then. you could also do duel booting where you have a windows partition that can either act as a VM or be booted directly (which is what I have on my laptop)
@trwnh interesting! I don't think I've ever seen that approach before, but best of luck! (let me know if it works lol)
Also, yeah if it's Primarily Windows it might just be easier to run Windows on bare metal. If you're doing gaming, vfio tuning is a pita
@trwnh oh yeah true
I remember some business with blacklisting everything including efifb let me see if I can find it
Looks like https://forum.level1techs.com/t/single-gpu-passthrough-with-proxmox/113282 might be a good reference if you decide to go this way
@trwnh yeah makes sense - cool about arch on usb too btw! Didn't know that was an official thing.
I wouldn't know about the bootup thing - I can't imagine Proxmox would have any display dependencies, but I haven't tried it myself.
@maloki a fair point
@DisneyCream I think we can agree to disagree
