We’re all eagerly anticipating Service Pack 1 as everyone does for things, but today the world got shook up with a pre-SP1 announcement that had loads of other “goodies” in it. There was a webcast (Virtualisation Hour) that announced some cool things…Let’s look at them more in detail:
- Windows XP Mode no longer requires hardware virtualization technology
- Microsoft Dynamic Memory will allow customers to adjust memory of a guest virtual machine on demand to maximize server hardware use
- Microsoft RemoteFX will enable users of virtual desktops and applications to receive a rich 3-D, multimedia experience while accessing information remotely.
- New roaming use rights improve flexibility
- Big partnerships with Citrix – http://www.citrixandmicrosoft.com/
So, what’s that really mean? Microsoft is committed to improving virtualisation for you me and the rest of the world. They’re also listening to the consumers as above is what people have been asking for.
