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.

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 really designed to compete against ESX, ESXi, and vSphere.

VMware Workstation is in a different class of product. VMware Server has reached end-of-life.

Right, but the author didn't specify what he was comparing it to. He just said VMware, which could mean anything like that. Including VMware Server even if it is EOLd.

It was criticism to show he needs to be more specific in his writing. It's obvious to him what he's comparing it to, but not to us.

Including Hyper-V in Windows consumer versions, versus server versions, automatically puts Hyper-V into the VMware Workstation and Virtualbox class of product.
