Proxmox is absolutely fantastic. I've been using it for several years now and it is reliable an amazing. Any time I think about getting a server setup, Proxmox is my first thought. It's easy to use and super rock solid. It's very light weight debian. It has the few utilities you need to be a nice core. I love it. What more can I say!?

It is very fine virtualization distribution and I recommend for personal as well as commercial purpose. I expect some features to get added to it which will definitely beat vmware products.
1. hotplug usb.
2. NAT similar to vmware-workstation.
3. able to virtualize macOS/hackintosh.
4. lxd,docker containers via proxmox web-ui.
