Anybody uses kali on hyperv instead of vmware?

i noticed that the latest release of kali 2020.2 is available for vmware and vbox but only 2019.3 is for hyperv. But I can easily just update kali once installed. Weird that the version available is not on par with the others and is 2 releases behind.

thinking of using hyperv because it is more close to being a type1 hypervisor compared to vmware/vbox which are type 2. type 1 has a bit more performance being closer to the hw.

What do you guys think? have you tried kali on hyperv before and regretted it or there are some problems I should know about?

I've also read that hyperv doesn't have a native way of interacting with the vm with a screen and that is why all windows vms need to use RDP to get a working GUI. Will kali or any linux distro be restricted to being controlled via ssh or some other remote desktop managers?
