Reality is, that many still use XP and are not even planning on upgrading to
Vista. XP might soon be EOL as far as premium support goes, but it wasn't
when Hyper-V RTM was released.
What about a situation where there is no SCVMM, and no possibility of a
local GUI for management. Like Hyper-V Server 2008? It seems the only option
is to just go for Vmware/Xen, as they offer management tools for XP too.
I am just talking theoretically, I personally don't have this problem, but I
can see why this might be a problem for many.
