There's no hardware GUI; you have to use the web portal for GUI. The web portal is not compatible with mobile. -So you need a second system... You could however do everything from terminal, but you would have to know all the commands.
IOMMU/VFIO/PCI pass-through features are existent in the GUI; but you still have to use terminal to add all the necessary commands to the qemu xml, kernel etc... We spent 16hrs setting it up; and still nvidia driver crashes when booting into windows 10 with the nvidia driver...
Open source, but nags you about not having a subscription. It's just Debian so you can add other repositories to update from so it's free with minimal annoyance. However there's other solutions free without annoyance, IOMMU/VFIO already set up...
My friend who remoted in to help with setting up IOMMU says ESXI has none of the present issues. However I am determined to use open source.
This distro is about as heavy as Lubuntu. So I'd recommend going with a generic distro with local GUI.

This is an excellent solution for my desire to run a personal cloud of VMs. Here's my favorite feature: a Proxmox server is managed through a web browser, not a dedicated program.

Probably the best free solution. KVM + Ceph is a great idea. Migrate VM cross different hosts with zero downtime is incredible.
