    Latest versions of Virtualbox and VMware support using the Hyper-V API so they can provide virtualization on top of the Hyper-V engine.

    Yeah, started to figure out how these things work. For WSL2 to work, you have to enable Hyper-V, which is a Type 1 hypervisor. This meaning, and something I only learned recently, that Hyper-V is loaded first before any OS. So if I enable Hyper-V to run WSL2, then my Windows 10 boot is also running on top of Hyper-V. Maybe that is not an issue, but kind of didn't like that. Would rather when I boot into Windows 10 that it ran on bare metal, not on top of a Type 1 hypervisor.

    And also, as stated, running a Type 1 hypervisor (i.e. Hyper-V) blocks the usage of any Type 2 hypervisors (e.g. VirtualBox). Not my ideal situation since I do use VirtualBox for things. Not saying I couldn't run any virtual machines with Hyper-V. But see first point

    If I am factually wrong on some of the details, I am not offend to be corrected.

    And MSFT added that very well hidden (and under documented) feature in Windows Defender that unless you uncheck it, blocks all virtualization for security purposes.

    As usual doing the right thing the wrong way.
