Windows Server 2008 to Ship WITHOUT Hypervisor But Will Have GP Preferences


…With regard to Hyper-V, Microsoft’s hypervisor product that is expected to ship within 180 days of the release of the server, Landes gave no update.

Windows Server 2008 RC1 brings with it enhancements to Group Policy through Group Policy Preferences, formerly known as PolicyMaker Standard Edition and Policy Share Manager. This allows customers to deploy and manage operating system and application settings that they were previously not able to manage using Group Policy, he said

Group Policy Preferences will be integrated into both the Group Policy management tools in Windows Server 2008 and the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista, which will be made available as a separate download in the Windows Server 2008 timeframe, Landes said.
