Quickly create and run optimised Windows, macOS and Linux desktop virtual machines.
RDP is really quite impressive. I host Windows VMs on a Linux server. With quickemu you can fire up a Windows Vm in minutes. It fetches the ISO, sets everything up - even breezes through setup, creates a user, does KMS for activation, etc. One command and a few minutes later you're looking at a Windows desktop. Setup Remote Desktop (with SSH forwarding or VPN of course) and you have a remarkably responsive (even at 4k single and dual display) GUI experience and powerful remote connection - file sharing, sound forwarding, clipboard sharing, even printers and arbitrary devices.
Virtual machines for iOS and macOS
They do but it's experimental and only for Linux guest: https://github.com/utmapp/UTM/releases/tag/v2.2.4
Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
Linux virtual machines, typically on macOS, for running containerd
I would be tempted to try this but both of my M1 Macs only have 8G of memory.
For text/she’ll only Linux, I have been using https://github.com/lima-vm/lima for the last week and for what I needed (I wanted to setup picolisp and Emacs for some experiments) it was all good.
