Windows After a few relatively small changes and not-so-earth-shattering features, the Windows 8 blog has now unveiled something many of you will surely appreciate: Hyper-V, Microsoft's hypervisor-based virtualisation software, will be integrated into the client releases of Windows 8 - not just the server releases.

Really nice for us techies for testing, developing etc.

But another thought: Couldn't this be used to get all those underutilized corporate desktops to handle some server tasks on the side? Imagine thousands of desktops idling 90 % of the time. If utilization of the desktop VM increases, the server task could be live-migrated somewhere else.
