Default Headless Ghost, HDMI display emulator

"Headless Ghost is a display emulator (dummy plug) that fits discreetly in to a HDMI socket."

Sounds like it may be of value to those that run GPU based projects or remote into machines.

Not needed for Linux, but I could see that being useful for other operating systems.

I really don't see a major use for this, why not just use a dummy DVI (which almost all the cards have) you can easily do yourself?

We received word that these are about to ship. We have three ordered.

It will be interesting to see if they allow us to use the onboard (Intel/AMD) video for "admin work" and the NVIDIA cards for compute only. (This is with Windows.)
