Hyper Threading and Virtual Machines?

http://serverfault.com – I already looked at this thread: Hyper-V and Hyper-threading: On or off?, but the only answer is Windows specific.... I am building a VM server (using Proxmox VE if that makes a difference) and was wondering about how hyper threading can affect virtual machines... Specifically, if I max out the number of virtual machines, would hyper threading help, or hurt performance? Also, the largest virtual machines will be a Terminal Server with ~30 clients (4 Cores/8 GB of RAM), and a file server if that helps. (HowTos)
