The ability to run virtual machines and now virtual desktops is a feature that is overlooked but is useful for people who might want a business/job desktop and personal desktop.
I don't know about that. On my previous system running Windows 8.1, I used VMware Workstation to run VMs for various testing purposes. So when I recently set up my new system, also with Windows 8.1, I decided to go with HyperV since I want to keep things as "pure" as possible.
Well all I can tell you is that I was quite disappointed. For one thing, with HyperV VMs you cannot even resize the container window and let it auto-resize the guest OS desktop like you can with VMware. No, you are stuck with a few low-res, non-widescreen resolutions. After some searching, I found some suggestions on adding more resolutions, but I still didn't have anything that matched my actual monitors. Maximize the VM window? In Workstation, the guest OS desktop is resized to exactly your monitor resolution. In HyperV it just centers the guest OS while maintaining the crappy low resolution.
The typical suggestion on how to "fix" this issue is to RDP into the VM. Say what??
I mean, maybe MS should run the competitor software from time to time to see how it should be done. It is hard to believe that VMware can make such a smooth integration with Windows running in a VM, but MS can't.
That is just one example, there are others too. Eventually I just gave up and switched back to using VMware Workstation.
BTW I did look into the "Enhanced Session" or whatever it is called. That also didn't help much.
