Ubuntu 12.04 With Built-In Hyper-V Guest Support Is Available

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!
