I'm interested in setting up a VM rig to replace my current Media-File Server/Workstation/Gaming/etc machine. My current box is a jack of all trades and does the job without too much of an issue, but my problem with this setup is that everything has to live in the same environment which has its disadvantages... especially when it I run into a hardware/software issue. It would be nice to have separate VM environments for different purposes. So my ideal setup would look like Hyper-visor OS > -Windows 7/10 (Gaming) -Windows 7/10 (Work/Moonlighting) -Windows 7/10 or Linux (Plex Media Server) -Windows 7/10 (General Testing) -MacOS (iOS and Dev work) And possibly a few others, if I find the need for them. As mentioned above, this is all already being done on my current box, but it's all hosted on a Windows 10 OS, and using VMWare for the virtual machines (with work and gaming being done of the host OS). So with that all said, I don't have any experience using a dedicated hypervisor OS and have limited experience with Linux (which makes me a little nervous if something were to go wrong on the host). I was hoping someone would be kind enough to give me some advice on what software I should be looking into to make this happen as well as the hardware I'd need. easy to use would be preferable, but it needs to be able to run MacOS as well. I was also looking at the new AMD 8900X 12core CPU as a possible candidate, but will have to do some more research into it. Any thoughts?
