In my job, as a program manager, I spend a lot of time talking to people who are planning or deploying Hyper-V. One of the things I love about developing software is when you get to see people using your software in the real world – and I get to see this every day with Hyper-V. In fact – lately, I have found that more and more of my day-to-day life is actually running on Hyper-V.
During a recent vacation to Australia – I informed my wife that we had to do our grocery shopping at Coles. When she asked why, my simple response was “they use Hyper-V” (I also made sure to tell all my family and friends in Australia that they should be shopping at Coles as well).
Fortunately, my wife is getting used to having to deal with the extra input into our lives.
For instance – when we recently received an email from our bank informing us that they were using Kroll Factual to handle some account work that we had asked them to do – my response was “Cool!”. To which my wife immediately said “Let me guess, they use Hyper-V?”.
Yes, they do.
