I just realized, I game at 1080p.
And I have a GTX 1080...

"what's to stop you from using Linux with KVM instead?"
2 things; while Linux has better technology for infrastructure and administration, it's too complex, and doesn't run a single program that would be needed, and everything is only available on Windows; KVM? Uh, NO! I am NOT switching every single VM I've designed for the commonly used VMware to use a foreign program that doesn't even have the same integration-- and don't forget that practically no one uses KVM for their images!
Reference to paragraph 3:
Actually, it is still new to me, and I only just found the articles a couple days ago, and am still combing through the details. I've known about the "VM sharing" feature for years, but never had a use for it, much less the mechanical parts to effectively run it...
There used to be solutions for RDP, but most offered ZERO GPU acceleration and/or required close proximity for physical "remote" access.
There are at least 2 things I still don't understand; Shouldn't there be a way to softmod VM networking to allow Wake-On-LAN to the virtual adapters? And to what extent does the integrated VNC connection part of VM system options connect users to the image? My users need the ability to power ON and hard reset at their discretion, so that's the big problem right now. The possibility of access to the boot screen would be a nice bonus in some cases.
Can't I just add on a software cPanel of some sort that would integrate seamlessly with VMware Workstation to solve this? I've heard about cPanel solutions for years, but most are nearly imposible to access and/or don't do all of what they advertise, while some simply don't work at all unless you have a serious Active Directory system (which BTW is completely obsolete) and SQL for logging!
I've been thinking of that forever, but have absolutely no programming experience, no time to learn, and no source code to start with even then. I'd have to completely restructure VMware Workstation by hand from the ground up, and spend Billions of dollars trying to get a license for top-secret IP owned by greedy, useless corporations managed by lousy suburban bumpkins, city hicks, and telephone halls in India! All of that so I can make a special variant of some program...
It's bad enough I had to wait FIVE YEARS for the hardware I need to be developed and manufactured, and several more years for it to be affordable! And worse, there have only every been 4 or 5 boards that even remotely match the specs I'm looking for, and they're still not right! It's these little features here and there that really P1$$ me off-- things like one feature missing or different, or an extra thing that got reshaped from the original idea which would have been better!
Did you know that motherboard designs are essentially more secure, and more heavily guarded than the entire world's cash supply AND Nuclear B0MB stockpiles!?!
Software is easy enough to steal and modify... But to FIX the schematic and underlying design of a MOTHERBOARD?!? That would take the threat of Stalin AND Hitler RISING FROM THE DEAD, to get ANYONE to cooperate, and millions of dollars PER BOARD to produce the modified product!
Don't even get me started on the devastating, mind-boggling flaws of EVERY SINGLE CHASSIS EVER MADE; it's pathetic! People SUCK at chassis design-- even the big companies that waayyy overcharge for any amount of modification or custom design have ZERO imagination!
"sounds like you need a custom solution"
I always have, and always will.
"Might have to program that yourself"
I would, but I can't.
Thanks for trying anyway.
