News broke over the last 24 hours that the PLA (People’s Liberation Army - military of People’s Republic of China) has decided to adopt Hyper-V to virtualise their NeoKylin Linux distro, with the assistance of Microsoft.  I have a few thoughts on this:

  1. I seriously don’t think that the PLA would adopt a virtualisation solution that wasn’t stable, scalable, or enterprise ready.  How do you like them apples, vFanboys?
  2. Can you imagine the size of the deployment that this will be?  Dear Mr. Hu Jintao, can I play with this Hyper-V deployment?  I promise I won’t break it.  Honest!
  3. I wonder if Sybex has printed my book Mastering Hyper-V Deployment in Mandarin?
