(In reply to Sepherosa Ziehau from comment #4)
Gen2 VM is based on UEFI and SCSI instead of BIOS and IDE. As a desktop user, I
only want to use modern systems, not legacy :) The thought of using emulated
IDE drives is terrifying. (VirtualBox emulates NVMe, dammit!)

I actually recommend using VcXsrv and SSH X forwarding via PuTTY. I have a
little PowerShell script to launch the VM and run X apps from the VM on the
Windows desktop: https://github.com/myfreeweb/xvmmgr

Still, why exactly is the Hyper-V console "_not_ suitable for X related
