    Currently running Windows 10 on an Asus BM6675, with Core i7 3770, 16GB of RAM, 120gb SSD and 1TB data HDD. I only have the built-in NIC. I have that connected to my router that does NAT. In Windows 10, running VMWare Workstation, I run a variety of Windows and Linux OS versions for running apps and testing.

    I would like to try running the free VMware VSphere Hypervisor as my "primary" OS and then run all of my VMs, including one for Windows 10 itself, in the Hypervisor. Would that actually work? How would things like audio and USB be passed to the host? Do I need to use another PC to run the client which connects to the server, or can I run everything and access all FROM the server itself?

    In short, has anyone else tried, or done this, and have any thoughts?
