Hyper-V in Windows 8

Microsoft have announced some more details of Hyper-V in Windows 8 in the Building Windows 8 blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2011/09/07/bringing-hyper-v-to-windows-8.aspx

There are two really exciting things about this. First, Hyper-V is included in the Windows 8 client – I don’t have to have Server loaded to run it. That is going to be huge news to those folks using the client as their workstation/laptop/desktop. We can get rid of the rather poor VPC 7 product (and of course stop using Oracle/VMware).

The second really cool thing is that Hyper-V will support wireless adapters. This is a huge benefit for those of us on the road using Wireless everywhere. I have  new laptop with an 802.11N wireless adapter that I will now be able to use. I can’t wait to upgrade my laptop to Win8!!

These are both welcome additions – I can’t wait to get my hands on the beta next week at BUILD!
