Unless you've been living in a hole for the past few days, or you're seriously anti-Windows or simply not into your virtualisation at all, you're probably aware that Hyper-V, the replacement for Virtual Server 2005, has gone “gold” (RTM).

There's all sorts of news on this, but little in the way of unix and unix-like related info on the web. Despite having 2 customers with it at work, I've not had the opportunity to try any of the unix-like systems on it either.

Sean on the other hand has had the time and opportunity, and has posted a nice round up of Linux distros which work and a few work arounds for known issues, all in his entry entitled “Linux on Hyper-V”.
