I’m going to move my actual RPI3 HASSIO to Intel NUC i3
I was thinking to install ESXi 6.5 (it seems that 6.7 does not work), but I know (maybe I’m wrong) that ESXi does not recognize the WLan card, and I was thinking to use it.
Then, installing Ubuntu Server 18.10 on a VM and install HASSIO using docker.
The other option is to install directly on NUC Ubuntu Server, same as above hoping that WLan will work.
Of course, I know that having a real VM Manager like ESXi will let me “play” with VMs making snapshots, clones, testing and so on.
The configuration will be 8GB ram and 250GB SSD.
