We have thought about Server 2008 and Hyper-V but occassionally the images we
create need to be taken to a client (rather than just used in our office or
hit via VPN) and we need to be able to run them on a laptop and external
hard-drive. We can move freely from VS to VPC today and only have to be
aware of reduced memory when running under VPC.
I know you can move an image from VS to Hyper-V, but can you move it back
