Ok, color me impressed. I'm watching today's PDC keynote and just saw that Windows 7 can natively:
- Mount VHD files as disks
- Create fixed size or dynamic VHDs
- Boot from Windows 7 VHDs
Holy crap. That last one totally blows me away - the ability to natively boot from a VHD file to test a virtual machine (and the software it runs) without a host OS sucking down resources. Oh yeah!
Now if they just expand the mounting support to also include standard ISO images, I'll be the happiest geek on the block.
it's not BI, but I'm darned excited!
