Well this clearly looks like it is vindicating some of the comments from Brian Madden's site that Hypervisors will become a commodity, and what will clearly differentiate will be the Management Tools for Virtual Machines.

Microsoft Hyper-V is the final name for codename Viridian

Monday, November 12, 2007   |   0 Comments

With an unexpected announce Microsoft opens TechEd IT Forum 2007 in Barcellona revealing that final name for codename Virdian will be Hyper-V.

Tentative name used so far, Windows Server Virtualization (WSV) is now definitively dropped.

With the new name Microsoft also reveals that Hyper-V will be released as a stand-alone product as well as a feature for every Windows Server 2008 64bit edition.

Difference between these packages is that Hyper-V stand-alone will load a Windows Server 2008 Core edition into its parent partition, and will be bundled with OEM servers from Dell, HP, IBM and others at the price of $28. Other versions instead will load a fully featured version of the OS.

After several different and confusing messages, now Microsoft finally states that first beta of Hyper-V will be released at the of end of January 2008.

more at source... Microsoft Hyper-V is the final name for codename Viridian
