There are 3 things I get asked regularly about Hyper-V. The first is "When can I get it ?". I've covered this before, the product group have committed to ship by August 2nd, and I've thought for a while that they're looking good to beat that. At MMS Bob Muglia said how pleased we were with performance and we're running the main Technet and MSDN sites on Hyper-V already. Question 2 is "Can you compare X with feature Y in VMware ?". And the third is "Will I be able to move my VMs from X to the release version of Hyper-V ?". Where X might be Virtual PC, Virtual Server, Pre-release Hyper-V, or VMWare. So let's go over the basic rules.
Those are all the bits I can think of, but if I've missed something I'll cover it in a later post
[Update Added this Footnote to point 2 * I'm told that in the future it may be possible to install ICs in a OS which is not supported - as I've described "supported" above, or an OS which lacks ICs may be supported. ]
There was a slight hiccup which meant news appeared, disappeared and then re-appeared. But all the right
