Linux Support

Let us know your suggestions for Linux running as a guest operating system on Windows Server Hyper-V: features you want, distros you want supported, performance limitations you encounter, etc. You can also expand the scope beyond Linux, and give us input on other open source operating systems running as a Hyper-V guest. Or let us know about aspects of Linux and Windows Server interoperation that you would like to see improved.

See Linux and FreeBSD Virtual Machines on Hyper-V for information about current product capabilities.

  1. LIS shouldn't be pinned to specific kernel versions and should be distributed as a package via a repository

    Much like VMWare, Xen, etc. LIS shouldn't be kernel version specific, ever. Also, LIS should be available for numerous distributions via packages (not tarballs with shell scripts). Finally, LIS should be distributed via repositories (not some random KB number). Adhere to Linux standards and best practices; it'd really help us like you guys more.
