Ubuntu 12.04 has Hyper-V support Built-in

The latest release of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Long Term Support) code named Precise Pangolin from Canonical has many new features as in with any new release improving stability and speed. The interesting addition that will excite Microsoft shops and fans is built in support for Hyper-V eliminating the need to install Microsoft Linux Integration Components inside Ubuntu 12.04 when deployed as a VM






As you can see in the above screenshots the kernel version is 3.2 which has Hyper-V IC modules and detects all Hyper-V synthetic devices like NIC, SCSI storage, has mouse integration and supports multiple vCPUs out of the box.


Hope to see other Linux distributions do the same soon.
