Hey @T3chn0T33n 
These are mostly restrictions on shadow. Programs that require virtualization just won’t run. Only attempting to modify shadow to do so is a violation of the terms of service. But you don’t attempt to modify shadow by installing/running a program. You can try it but I believe it just won’t work. If you need a bit more detail on that: Shadow is a VM, hosted by a hypervisor. Nested Virtualization is disabled for all shadow machines.
