You most certainly can run a GUI on vms. Use the spice display on the VM and a spice client on the desktop for a good remote desktop experience Here is a windows 7 desktop (2 displays) and a centos 7 desktop running on a Proxmox 5.2 cluster and displaying on a local desktop. These can be made full screen. Quite useful when you need another OS for some specific task.

I think you missunderstood. OP wants to rub gui on the host not in VMs. Ofcourse you can run fui in vm. But op want to use the same machine for server/vm and workstation.
Possible but not recommended.

Hi Thank's for yours answers
I will look at these
If i can suggest something , for the next release add in the install menu , an option with GUI on server.
If you want to test Proxmox it is good to have all on one PC and not a small architecture with server and client.
and may be a small entry in how-two about this option , i was looking for it

Best regards

Neither Hyper-V (not the Hyper-V role on a windows server) nor VMware comes with a GUI on the server.
you are a really joker

HYPERV from M$ come with core version ; no gui just command line and version with Microsoft server and Hyperv with a nice GUI (the windows standard for windows server ) on the machine

That is exactly what I wrote and meant with Hyper-V role, because that's exactly how it is implemented on a windows server.

Every major enterprise operating system is dropping the GUI on servers for many years now and moved towards TUI or remote administration. MS is no exception and they also said that in the end, there will not be any GUI left on the core windows servers, because everything can already be administrated remotely. BTW: I have servers that do not have a graphics card and operate completely headless.

On VMware and especially on Proxmox VE there is no need for a special GUI, because everything works directly inside of a browser, so that you can (in theory, I've never done it) administrate your system on your phone. If you just want to play around with Proxmox VE (not on dedicated hardware), the best way is to use it inside of another hypervisor on your desktop machine (e.g. KVM, Hyper-V, VirtualBox or VMware Workstation).
