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.

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?


Oops. I was comparing against both VirtualBox an VMWare Workstation at different times. I used to use VirtualBox, but now I have access to VMWare Workstation 8, which I've found to be much more stable than VirtualBox.

That's not really a good comparison. V-Server competes with server virtualization products like Xen(Server), KVM and vSphere/ESX(i)/Whatever-vmware-calls-it-today. It's not intended for desktop use in the first place.

Well, Microsoft is beginning to position Hyper-V for desktop use, so comparing it in that context is fair.

No worries, just realize readers only know what you tell them, and little details like that aren't obvious to people who weren't there.
