We have been doing a lot of work to increase the functionality of Linux on top of Hyper-V, and we have been contributing the necessary changes directly to the main Linux source. While this is all good – it has caused confusion for some people as they are trying to figure out which versions of Linux support which features on Hyper-V.
Thankfully – our documentation team have been busy putting together some awesome guidance here.
First there is the “Feature Descriptions for Linux virtual machines on Hyper-V” page – that explains all the features and options that are available.
Second – there are pages for a number of the major Linux variants:
Each of these pages tell you exactly what features are supported in what versions. Very helpful!
