Re: Running Linux VM under Windows, performance hit?

I am not sure UNIVERSE is a good test, since it is so well optimized for the Mint 20 (and other updated distro's) kernel.

Running Linux VM under Windows, performance hit?

I was wondering how much performance is left on the table, if you run Linux optimized tasks (Universe, for example), in a VM on a Win10 system?
I can't imagine a VM would use less than one full thread, at least?
