Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

Hyper-V 3.0 Confirmed for Windows 8 Client

A moment has come that I am very excited about. I have been taking a part the latest Windows 8 leaked build (7989), which is the first time an X64 build has leaked. In looking at the Windows Features item in the Control Panel, I came across something new.

Apparently it’s been in there for quite a while, but between the focus on Consumer features, and the lack of X64 builds leaking out, it’s the first time we’ve seen it. In perusing through the various screens, I’m able to confirm over a dozen new features for Hyper-V 3.0 They are:

This is a huge step forward for Windows 8. I believe it will have a huge impact on a wide array of usage scenarios, the least of which is the potential for self-contained App-V / Windows XP Mode support. Not to mention better Windows Phone 7/7.5/8 Emulator support. But more on that in my next post. In the meantime, I’ll be switching my VMs over to using Win8 as my Hyper-V host, while I wait for someone to unlock the Immersive UI in this build. Enjoy!

    Distributed computing meets *desktop computing*.  The power has been available for a while (going back to the Intel and AMD quad-cores) - the problem is that desktop operating systems (let alone desktop applications) simply lacked the ability to make use of, let alone manage, all that power.  Even now, taking advantage of, or managing, that power is no picnic.  The two choices - XEN and Hyper-V - each have their own baggage; worse, neither has been suitable for desktop deployment (XEN isn't even capable of it, as XEN itself supplies merely a skeletal hypervisor; Hyper-V doesn't even include the skeleton, instead requiring a supporting operating system (Windows Server 2008 R2 or later, or Windows 8) to provide management support).  What Windows 8 is attempting to do is actually, to an extent, what Windows NT historically has always been about - taking techniques and technologies from further up the computing chain and making them ubiquitous.  I'm actually expecting programmers with experience in distributed (example - Azure) computing to start doing some serious leveraging of this paradigm on the desktop.

  • Wil, I'm positive. The Server version does not have Hyper-V in the "Turn Windows features on or off" dialog. It's the client.

    This isn't the first time an x64 build has leaked, actually. Windows 7 pre-beta leaks were initially x86 only, but there *were* plenty of x64 leaks close to beta date.
