+ - MS removes features from MS Virtualization Tools

Submitted by

untouchableForce writes "Microsoft has dropped three features of it's virtualization tools that are to ship with the next version of Windows Server. The three features that have been dropped are:
  • Live Migration
  • Hardware Hot Swap Compatibility
  • Ability to use more than 16-CPU Cores
The cutting of these features comes after the beta release of this product was delayed last month but claimed to still be on schedule. One has to wonder if they are still on schedule if they are cutting features. Considering the massive delay's suffered by windows vista, and it's slow adoption rate among corporation could this be an opportunity for alternative OSes to pick up additional market share?"
