    I wish they would get rid of this crappy COM API.

          Kind of curious, what hypervisors do support Wayland?

            Shrug, works perfectly for my various desktop vm use cases, I've been very happy with it.

              What i hate about it is extremely poor 3D performance. I don't know if there is a bug or not, but even though i enable Direct 3D support for Windows guests the performance is so slow, that even Football Manager 2019 2D user interface (not the match engine, just the interface) is a slide show. In Vmware it runs like a charm. Haven't tried Vbox 6.0 version, i hope this has been improved...

                The feature list is underwhelming. It feels more like a minor update. And on Linux I use KVM anyway. However, it's pretty useful on Windows. I wish it had virtio-blk support though. I think that would improve performance quite a bit for Linux guests. As for 3D support - well, better not comment on that.

                  Is vmware 3d fast enough for x-plane in lowest settings?

                    Haven't tried. And what for? There is a native version.
