The beta of the next version of Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) is now available. For those not familiar with MED-V, it’s part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP). The purpose of MED-V is to remove the barriers to Windows upgrades by resolving application incompatibility with Windows Vista or Windows 7. MED-V does this by delivering applications in a virtual PC that runs a previous version of the operating system (for example: Windows XP). This is done in a way that is completely seamless and transparent to the user. Applications appear and operate as if they were installed on the desktop, so that users can even pin them to the task bar.
