The 12.04 LTS (long-term support) version of Ubuntu has been released overnight and it includes the Linux kernel with full built-in support for running on Hyper-V. That means that you should be able to:
- Mount a Ubuntu ISO in a Hyper-V VM
- Install the OS
- Avail of all the Hyper-V devices and integrations that are supported by Linux with no extra IC installations required
Nice! In fact, The Register agrees with that assessment too. I hope that the other Linux distro’s catch up with Ubuntu.
Congrats Mike & the team!
