I'm attending Microsoft Management Summit 2012 this week and had an interesting observation in one of my sessions. I always ask (and make a little joke out of asking) "Who is using VMware?" and as you would expect, the majority of the room raise their hand. No surprise. I asked the same question during one of my sessions at MMS and I received the same result. I then asked the obvious next question, "Who is using Hyper-V?" In the past at a Microsoft-focused event such as MMS, I would honestly get a healthy showing of hands and I would use that as a good indicator that there is some pickup with Hyper-V. This time when I asked about Hyper-V usage, nearly the entire room raised their hand! Now I understand, yes, this is a Microsoft crowd, but wow, that is impressive.
