Qemu has had passthrough capability for a long time, however hardware configuration has always been hit or miss. (See link below) This is good news from Nvidia for sure. Gnome boxes developers have been working on a simple solution for the last few years and you can definitely expect one for Nvidia now, probably from Fedora on gnome 40.

Below is a not too bad tutorial for installing a bootable virtual permanent legal Windows 10 on a Linux OS.

Virtualbox dropped PCI passthrough in Linux hosts starting from version 6.1.0 https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Let's hope Virtual Box get's back on the wagon! ;)
