I am moving from a job as an Enterprise IT person to full time consulting - visiting different clients on different weeks, etc.
My main functions will be around Active Directory and different versions of MS Exchange.
I always had readily accessible test servers, now I think for demos, studying, testing scritps, etc. that I will need to have 64 bit virtual machines ready on my laptop whenever I need them.
I have reviewed this person's blog to see his notes and wanted to ask for feedback here to see what others are doing:
I am assuming my options are VMware and Hyper-V, which one would you choose? Why?
The ideal setup would let me use MS Office apps ( outlook, word, visio ) as well launch the virtual machines.
(if you say I should have my client os with the ms office apps in a vm I guess that would be fine too. )
I would like to use Windows 7 as my client os.
