Throwing the option out there.

Hyper-V does work well and Hyper-V server is free.

No the thing is, I'm trying to consolidate hardware - I'm slowly removing more and more from my house. If I could minimise my Windows VM to say 6GB memory, 4 cores (out of my 32GB memory, 8 cores) and run it under BHyve, it'll mean my server is pretty much my only physical device running stuff in the house.


I wouldn't mind setting up CUPS in a VM somehow with USB passthrough, instead of my OrangePiZero but that's really not necessary, yet.

Mine isn't perfect but it's definitely usable - what about stability?
With stability I don't have any problems sinse I use the VirtIO NIC drivers.

So rock solid, but slow - it's better than nothing. Ok thanks!
