Add shared VHD support to client OS
It is just one filter driver needed in the stack that will enable shared VHD (svhdxflt.sys). This feature would really help IT Pros to play with scenarios, where shared VHD is needed (Storage Replica scenarios, SAN simulations etc.)

Since Windows Server 1709/1803 ... does not have GUI, its hard to connect to VM if not domain joined. If you want to have supported nested virtualization scenario, you need to stick with latest host release. IMHO this is more and more legit scenario.

The cost/benefit ratio does not fit IMO.
Having a SMB background, I've seen quite a bit of the desktop deployed as a "server" scenario.
For folks serious about setting up labs/testing for shared VHDX deploy on Windows Server trial ISOs and/or VHDX.
