Demo: Microsoft codename Viridian Technical Preview

After revealling that codename Viridian beta 1 will be included in Windows Server 2008 RTM, set for February 28, Microsoft published a 10-minutes demo of the technical preview included in Window Server 2008 RC0.

It’s the first time Microsoft shows Viridian to a broad audience since first demo presented at WinHEC 2006.

The video shows Viridian integration in a full version of Windows, a scenario which Microsoft didn’t plan initially, stating that virtualization capabilities would be available only on Windows Server Core 2008 Edition.

The whole video is available for download here and in streaming here.
