      That Twilight Struggle is totally awesome as boardgame version. It lives very high to its name, the game is real struggle, where you have to make do with tough choices about what is the least bad of all disastrous cards you have. So much fun!

        Is virgl actually work for anyone on Ubuntu 19.04 host with Ubuntu 19.04 guest? Seems like all components is available, driver loads, yet there is either black screen or llvmpipe (depends on BIOS or UEFI in VM configuration).

          I don't see how, considering it's only useful for linux-kernel guests at this moment. Isn't it?

              I'm sorry, I tried to resist. But in the end I had to give in to my puerile impulses ...

                It seems to run much better in qemu than it does in virtualbox. I might want to switch over to qemu for windows virtualization in the future. Too bad Microsoft doesn't provide qemu images of their operating systems.

                  Please please please add VirGL tcp Spice support, otherwise all of those goodies would be of no use for most of us.
