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.

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

I'm assuming that the positioning for desktop use may include the moving of win32 into a Hyper-V session rather than the frankenstein setup that uses a maze of registry hacks and shims as to get a desired result?

It may be a Frankenstein setup, but App-V works. Apps are isolated from each other, and will uninstall cleanly. And you don't have to manage a whole other operating system, because the apps are still running (through a redirection layer) on top of your primary OS.
