    Anyone used Hyper-V? I'm not sure about this being bloat or not.

    No bloat, well not in my mind. Along with my normal desktop I also use 2008 Hyper-V, login remotely and also as a Workstation. Those that like virtualization will should love it.

    I have no idea how to get Hyper-V to work. I don't think it's included yet.

    You need to install it via enable/disable features, so yes.

    Just enabled it. I'll try out the latest Ubuntu beta on it later.

    Anyone have a link to the latest beta btw? =p

    "Enable Hyper-V to manage the memory amount dynamically for this VM"

    Now THAT is a great feature. I don't think other programs will be able to compete since I doubt they can add a feature like that.

    Yes, you set an initial number as well as a dynamic one. I assume it can't exceed the initial number.
