    Microsoft to make Ubuntu 18.04 a First class VM with HYPER-V


    Hi folks

    Some might be interested in this -- could be a winner for Ms if they can eat into VMware's market.

    Microsoft's revealed a plan to make Ubuntu 18.04 a "first-class" guest under Hyper-V.
    Microsoft's definition of first-class may sound a bit ho-hum for users of other desktop hypervisors, as it includes window resizing, a clipboard that goes from host to guest and back again, something Microsoft's called a "Better mouse experience", Drive redirection and the Enhanced Session Mode that allows a guest to access host hardware. The Register's virtualization desk has enjoyed such features for quite some time in VirtualBox and VMware's desktop hypervisors.

    This link has more details (steps to do it are for version 16.04 - 18.04 is slightly easier)

    Here is how to do it for 18.04. Works on SCU

    NOTE: 18.04 is not yet officially issued for a couple of week or so. Above guide uses the daily prerelease builds.
