  1. "For a long time now we've talked about
    how we're approaching the point where you could buy a single computer and have two users enjoy it simultaneously"
    only if you could buy that computer

  2. I think this is kinda pointless… I would definitely go with two separate PCs, and one common network share – would be waaay cheaper to build, too.
    Just to compare it with the table they presented there:
    Phanteks Eclipse P600s – $220
    SK Hynix Gold P31 1TB – $135
    Ryzen 5 3600X – $210
    G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3600 Mhz – $90 (kind of a well known fact: either go big with 3600, or go home with 2133/2400, there's no in between with third gen Ryzen)
    RTX 3080 (when it comes out) – $700
    Gigabyte B550 AORUS Elite AX – $170
    Seasonic Focus Gold 850W – $155
    Noctua U12A – $100
    Total is $1780 per computer, $3560 for two. Keep in mind this can be made significantly cheaper by using a simpler case, simpler SSD, simpler memory without lights on it, Gaming X instead of AORUS Elite motherboard, cheaper PSU and cheaper CPU cooler – I suspect they built it out of this stuff just to advertise it, to fulfill their obligations to the manufacturers.
    Still, that's $230 shaved just by switching 2 components, for which you can buy a $100 NAS and a 1TB SSD for it.

  3. VMs are not ideal since you have a pretty high chance to trigger some anticheat software, for example, on Faceit. Permanent ban is not a great gaming experience. And there still is a slight perfomance hit.
    However, there are ways on Linux to create a truly parallel desktop experience for multiple users with one OS running on bare hardware, just with 2 graphical sessions, each with its own output and input. This guide is a little outdated though, but it can be done still, and obviously not only on Ubuntu.
