Hi,

Any information on what these 2 option features do? I think the Hypervisor one you add in the features on a running Hyper-V machine of Windows 10 so you can run Hyper-V machines in that...

Hyper-V:
Microsoft Hypervisor

Virtual Machine Platform:
Enables platform support for virtual machines. It is a requirement for using WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux v2) which is a very improved version of the original WSL. There are also many other use cases, but WSL is the main one.

Windows Hypervisor Platform:
Enables virtualization software to run on Windows Hypervisor. It is a requirement for running Docker images. But it also enables 3rd-party tools like Oracle Virtual-Box, QUEMU and VMWare Workstation to run using Hyper-V.

Note, all 3 things mentioned above are 3 separate things.

    Swapped out the default Realtek wireless card for Intel AC-9260. Oh boy, what a difference in speed and reliability. Once I upgrade my router to WiFi6, I'll swap to Intel AX200.
