Microsoft to distribute Viridian beta 1 with Windows Server 2008 RTM

Earlier this month broke the news that a technology preview of upcoming Microsoft hypervisor (codename Viridian) has been included in Windows Server 2008 RC0 build, distributed to TAP customers.

Now Microsoft confirms the story and informs that the RC0 will be distributed to wide public, possibly on the week of September 17. But most of all the company reveals that final release of Windows Server 2008 will already include Viridian beta 1, as ZDNet is reporting.

Windows Server 2008 RTM is set for Q1 2008, with an official launch set for February 28.
