At least for my server, it's a tiny kernel with a shit ton of storage, so
everything is a vm!  It's really nice for remote gaming without having your
laptop burning its battery and your laptop.

But I guess the question is more focused on your laptop/desktop.  As others
have said, it depends on your usecase.  I run mac hardware with a
virtualbox windows vm for the rare occasions when I need to hop into
windows to test something (or spin up a windows VPC on $CLOUD_PROVIDER if I
need to test something that needs a "real" windows machine).  8 years ago,
I was running the reverse (windows hardware, linux vm) because that's what
I was used to.
