I just saw the blog post from Yung Chou (Technology Evangelist in Microsoft US Developer and Platform Evangelism team) where he posted a video from a 5th grader installing Hyper-V, creating a virtual machine and install a Windows Server 2012 VM.
After a great week in Bellevue and Redmond I arrived Sunday afternoon in Switzerland. This was my first Microsoft MVP Global Summit and it was great to be part of this. I cannot really talk about the content because of the NDA but besides the sessions it was great to meet a lot of Microsoft employees and of course other Microsoft MVPs.
Microsoft did a great job and especially the Hyper-V and System Center group.
If you ever have the chance to visit the MVP Summit you should definitely take the chance and visit Redmond. And if you should get hungry und you like steak I can recommend Daniel’s Broiler Steak house.
Great Dinner with other Hyper-V, System Center and Office 365 MVPs
Used my Surface RT to watch Movies and Sessions during the flights
This happens if you build your datacenter based on the Microsoft Surface Pro. I just saw a tweets from Jeff Woolsey and Ben Armstrong about how you install Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V on the Surface Pro and are running some Live Migrations of virtual machines.
Only a few days left until I catch my flight with Marcel Zehner (MVP System Center Datacenter & Cloud Management) to Redmond for the Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2013. Microsoft invites all MVPs worldwide (approx 4000) for a great week of learning, sharing and networking on the Microsoft Campus. For this week I had to pack some stuff for the flight and the days we will spend and work there.
Nokia Lumia 920 – We sure I need my smartphone and I definitely can use the Pureview camera to create some great shots from Seattle and Redmond.
Microsoft Surface RT – I loaded the Surface with a lot of movies for the long flight. The Surface RT should have definitely enough battery life for watching some videos and get some writing done.
Zune HD – I already mentioned that I am a huge fan of Microsoft Hardware and I like to have a different music player to save the battery of my Lumia 920.
Zune Headphones – I am still impressed by the quality of the Zune Headphones
Paolo Bonzini found something funny in the Linux kernel support code for Microsoft’s Hyper-V. There is a constant in the Linux integration drivers which gets passed through to the hypervisor and it called “0xB16B00B5″ if you are common with the leetspeak you can read the words “BIG BOOBS”.
Now I always knew that there was another advantage of Hyper-V over VMware
