In anticipation of next weeks 'Build Windows 2011' conference, Microsoft have confirmed the rumours that the new Windows 8 client operating system will come with Hyper-V built-in as standard.
Those of you familiar with Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V will see a very familiar interface on the Windows 8 client when compared to the server based implementation. The challenge that MS had to overcome with building Hyper-V into a client O/S was that a lot of client O/S devices that will use Hyper-V would have Wireless NIC's. Microsoft have confirmed support for Wireless NIC's in Windows 8 and have provided an example video of it working.
They have also demonstrated the new boot up speed which I calculated at close to 6 seconds from POST to Start screen!!
