- SMP support for Linux workload (up to 4 virtual CPU’s available for Linux virtual machines running on Hyper-V)

- Integrated Shutdown (you now can shut down a Linux virtual machine gracefully from the Hyper-V manager)
This is good news for system integrators that want to run both Windows virtual machines and Linux virtual machines side-by-side on a ‘cloud’ platform. Hopefully all of these new capabilities will find their way into the new distributions soon.
