So sure, good that they finally fix some bugs But kudos for them answering enterprise demand to be able to run Linux on a HyperV host.
Microsoft committed 1.3% of the lines of code changed in the Linux 3.0 kernel. Intel committed 18.1%. How about a big thank you to the guys at Intel that commit changes to things you actually use on your computer

I am using Linux because it's funny, but XP SP3 is far more stable to me, so I always keep a working partition with it. 2 BSODs in 2 years (and it's constantly updated), at pair with 2 kernel panics in 2 years (for stable distros!), but hundreds and hundreds of KDE or apps crashes.
