Windows Since its introduction at Microsoft's BUILD conference last September, Windows 8 has garnered a large measure of attention, especially with regards to the new Metro interface. The feature that intrigued me the most, however, was the inclusion of Hyper-V.

Good article. I would have like for you to have explained yourself a little more when you mentioned competing products, but this wasn't a vs. article.

Also, VMware kind of came out of nowhere. I thought you were just comparing to VirtualBox, then VMware comes in. What version of VMware was that anyway? ESX, ESXi, vSphere 5, Workstation, Server, Player?

Hyper-V is close to be ready for widespread desktop use. The performance is there, as are the heavyweight features. However, the complete lack of of desktop integration makes it cumbersome to use.


That's the exact same reason I'm using VirtualBox over KVM. USB, sound, and file passthrough are there; it's the lack of a fullscreen display resolution that gets me.
