Hi there
Running 2 or 3 Windows VM's with even a moderately good PC with plenty of RAM in it and using SSD(s) for the VM's has simply DIRE performance compared to running under KVM/QEMU

Here doing an update to install fast build release - while other VM (current build) running so I can compare results.

55% updated after 12 mins. (about the same as when I tried this update on a Native Windows laptop !!)

VMWare latest release performance very poor-screenshot_20200612_145558.png

Same scenario with VMWare Wks 15.5 -- got to around 11 after 40 mins so abandoned the effort.

Difference in using native (where possible) hardware rather than paravirtualised stuff --especially where disk I/O and graphics are concerned is huge !!!
