Recently, I took a closer look at Microsoft's release candidate of Hyper-V, the virtualization platform that didn't quite make it into Windows Server 2008.After less than a week, I'm hooked. In this image gallery, I'll show you how Hyper-V works, what it can and can't do, and where it falls short on the client side.
To work interactively with a Hyper-V virtual machine, you open it in a window like this one, either locally or from a remote terminal. The toolbar along the top of the window allows you to start, stop, or pause the machine or save its state. The VMBus devices shown here enable integration with a mouse pointer and enhanced video settings.
