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.

Why is it there?

I'm kinda out of the whole windows loop. Can anyone explain why Hyper-V is there on a desktop OS? Did they kill off virtualPC? I would have thought that virtualPC would have made more sense on a desktop.

yes hyper-v killed off virtualpc. I wish they would implement hyper-v like xenclient...basically it boots to a light desktop with all your virtual machines running on it..it is a bare metal hypervisor as well.
