So recently I got into a conversation on twitter with a friend of mine about Hyper-V.  !|title=Twitter Collage|height=84|style=border-top-width: 0px; display: inline; border-left-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; margin: 4px 0px 4px 10px; border-right-width: 0px|alt=Twitter Collage|width=161|align=right|src=|border=0! He was referencing how Microsoft talks about Hyper-V and how that is confusing to him and probably a lot of other folks too.  Here is a piece of the conversation from twitter:

    *@roidude** =* RT Hyper-V reason #3 (out of 7) to upgrade to Windows Srvr 2008 R2 - seems a bizarre way to look at virt. to me
    *@roidude** =* RT @[vRobM |]: it's still not bare metal ->MS calls Hyper-V "a key feature of Windows Server 2008"
    *@virtualizethis** =* @[roidude |] you mean #3 as in titled Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2?
    *@virtualizethis** =* @[roidude |] Any more details on why it's weird to you that you'd be willing to share?
    *@virtualizethis** =* @[roidude |] are you talking about how they twist it all around with paragraph two in #3
    *@roidude** =* RT @virtualizethis: are you talking about how they twist it all around with paragraph two in #3->Paragraph #1: "What is a hype..."
    *@roidude** <strong>=</strong> RT @[virtualizethis |]: Any details?-&gt;Hypervisor is platform for virtualized data center - scary to think of it as just an OS feature </li>    <li>*@roidude* =* Hyper-V home page no longer describes it as OS feature as opposed to Windows Srvr page that does

      For the record, folks should not consider this a negative conversation or that Steve was attempting to spread FUD, I don’t think that was his intention.  But he does bring up some good points and thus launches a valuable discussion with you, the reader.
