Description

There's always new stuff to play with, whether a preview version of Windows, a CTP of Visual Studio, or a prerelease of an upcoming version of ASP.NET or Entity Framework. Getting ahead of the curve and learning early sounds great, but how do you do it? You don't want to install these early bits on your production machine and you may not have spare machines lying around.

In this episode, Brian Randall shows us how virtualization provides the solution. Brian demonstrates how to create and manage multiple virtual machines and provides a variety of tips and tricks as well as best practices. If you want to hear from an expert on how virtualization means a better life for developers, check out this episode.

      I am looking for some information how to get the Virtual Switch manager to work in Hyper-V.. I tried to create an external switch, but it shut down internet connection for my host OS. I don't know how to do internet sharing on Windows 8 Pro. My guest OS is Windows XP. My guest OS has a blank IPConfig.
