Last week we held the "super bowl" (or "world cup" depending upon which flavor of football you prefer) of IT Pro conferences at Tech Ed held in Orlando. If you were there, you know that virtualization and our investments across the board were a central theme. I had the privilege of demonstrating SCVMM 2008 with Hyper-V during Bob's opening keynote. You can watch the keynote video here - the SCVMM demo is at the 42:30 mark of the session.
We're coming down the home stretch of getting this puppy out the door. We've received plenty of positive feedback from the beta and have incorporated some of the feature requests and many of the bug fix requests. While the beta version was technically "feature complete", we did put some time in our schedule to add some customer feature requests and as we get closer to the final release, I'll start sharing some of them with you. (One that we heard more than a few times was support for disjoint DNS name spaces which we'll support in the final release)
