Windows 7 and Me

I like Windows 7, don't get me wrong. There are quite a few features of Windows 7 that I've gotten used to in the month or two I've used it -- I love the ability to drag maximized windows between my two monitors without having to resize them first, and the way the taskbar works is so much nicer than previous versions. However, the fact remains that Windows 7 is still a beta, and it will eventually expire ... that, and like all other Windows desktop operating systems, virtualization support still requires additional software. As we only have one server that can handle any sort of virtualization, and that server is quite heavily utilized at the moment, I figured I'd need to take matters into my own hands, so I loaded Windows Server 2008 Standard on my desktop machine. After a few tweaks here and there, it looks exactly like Windows Vista, but it allows me to use Hyper-V instead of Virtual PC 2007 or the free version of VMWare. Good stuff.
