Not quite dead yet

Yes, it's been a while since I've updated anything here. I really should do more updates. 😋 I've worked on a few things, so will start scribbling things here in the meantime.

At the moment, I'm replacing my older server at home with an Intel NUC. While doing so, I was looking at installing Windows Server on my server as before... except that a few things have changed. For starters, since it's a 7th Generation Intel Core-based system, Windows Server 2012 R2 is no longer supported. Okay, I can deal with that... except that my preferred minimal server interface is no longer supported. Thanks?

So I suppose I'll end up running VMware ESXi there too. Except that there have been changes there as well, with VMware 6.5, where the native Windows client has been deprecated. Thanks? And on top of that, predictably, ESXi doesn't support the 7th Gen NUC out of the box. Fortunately, there are workarounds, but... bleh.

Just can't win, I guess...
