With support built into the Linux Kernel since version 2.6.20 just what is the point of even thinking of paying for using virtualization on a platform shipped with a known bugs and who know what other issues?
Hyper-V is Microsoft's whizzy new virtual server manager, which uses new virtualization features in recent Intel and AMD processors so support more efficient virtual machines.

MSFT overlooked one huge thing with this Hyper-V - if you are joining the market as a second place competitor you better make dam sure you can migrate the leading solutions into your own product.
Hyper-V has given me all sorts of problems and has not once migrated in a Workstation 6 or ESX3 image.
I've tried virtualization features into my Phenom, but with unsuccess.
Into W2008x86/64, i set to enable Hyper-V and restart my pc; i0ve see message that tell that virtualization may be enabled also into bios and this is next operatione that i do. After enabled into bios, when i try to open Hyper-V features my pc go to freeze.
I'm Microsoft subscriber, now Technet and previous MSDN, and if this happen newly and not appear any notice about it, i think that will contact my Microsoft services.
