This weeks question of the week come from these two questions:
One of them asked by Graham Clark, and the other is a self post by myself. This prompted me to do a more formal review of Microsoft’s Hyper-V for Windows 8.
What is Hyper-V for Windows 8?
Hyper-V for Windows 8 is really called Client Hyper-V. It’s similar in many aspects to the Microsoft Server’s Hyper-V (2008 and the upcoming 2012). What’s different about Client Hyper-V is that it was customized to fit the portable environments, such as laptops, that developer’s find themselves in. What does Hyper-V do?
In brief, Hyper-V lets you run more than one 32-bit or 64-bit x86 operating system at the same time on the same computer. Instead of working directly with the computer’s hardware, the operating systems run inside of a virtual machine (VM).
