This is a lowperv (low perversion)/high information blog post. That’s a joke people. The Social Bookmarking Preview on TechNet and MSDN does not support a hyphen in a tag, the tag comes out “hyperv”. Get it? High perversion = hyperv, low perversion = unnh, never mind…

You’ll be seeing many more resources to help you use Hyper-V after the final bits release. In the meantime, here are some resources to help you get ready, add these to the Hyper-V Security Getting Started Guide and Windows Server 2008 Resources
