“This week at VMworld we’re announcing that the Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Windows Server virtualization is coming soon with the initial release candidate of Windows Server 2008. We’re also announcing the new Microsoft Installer (MSI) Utility for Microsoft Application Virtualization, a utility for our SoftGrid Application Virtualization solution that bridges the gap between traditional physical control of installed applications and the new paradigm of virtual applications.”

Folks, this is just around the corner. You’ll be able to download Windows Server 2008 and start testing this new hypervisor technology. As soon as this releases, I’ll post a screencast I’ve already recorded on how to use WSv and some kewl features I can’t dicsuss just yet.
By the way, be sure to read the press announcement above carefully. There are some good nuggets in it that aren’t so obvious if you just skim over it.
