No one seemed to notice that ‘hyper-V’ was mentioned on Oct 18th on Technet, take a look here.

 

Do you like the name?

    Hi Clive,

    If Hyper-V was public in October… why were the product marketing team still using the Windows Server Virtualization name at a worldwide press conference the week before the Barcelona announcement?

    Or was the TechNet reference an (un)intentional leak?
