I started programming BASIC on an old HP mini as a child in the '70's, and later learned how to patch z80 code into an 8080 assembler on an Epson QX-10. I finally got out of my Arts degree program to get a BA in CS, and have eventually become an old UNIX guy working on Linux network drivers.

comment Audio cable “joiner”?
For that kind of setup, I use a mixer similar to this: amazon.com/Behringer-802-Xenyx-Standard/dp/B000JFY1Z6 which allows me to connect a couple of different inputs, including a keyboard and guitar through a small amp and speakers.

comment Advise on VMWare hardware requirements and host OS
Be aware that the host for vSphere Client must be a Windows box. Since I normally use linux, I run the Win OS in a VM under VMPlayer or on another ESX server.
