      *ROFL* German readers would probably confirm this as a perfect tool name

        I have not had any problems with RH virtio drivers in the past 3 years in Windows 7 or 10. Happy to see it being included in the ISO.

        Looking forward to a 3D driver sometime ;-)

          I'm hoping DXVK with a Vulkan passthrough leads the way to a 3d driver.

            I suppose it's unlikely macOS VMs will ever get usable virtIO drivers?

                Last time I checked, the virtIO network driver was speed limited when using a 10Gb Mellanox link on the Linux host. I will install the update and see what happens.

                  That name sounds a little off for germans, that's right, see https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wichser

                  You can directly switch languages there.

                  There is also wix.com offering a website builder, doing TV Commercials. Those also do feel a bit off.
