From training my understanding is that branch distribution points (dedicated SCCM 2007 server) has been scrapped in SCCM 2012.

You can now use the following clients (max 20 connections):

Windows vista, Windows 7, Windows server 2003, and windows server 2008/r2

What about Windows 8 and Windows 2012 are they supported ? Can I use HyperV as a distribution point?

How would I make the clients a distribution point? Can I just select a client in SCCM 2012 and tell it to make it a distribution point?

Yes they are all supported (except of PXE and Multicast Feature)

--> " Operating System for Typical Site System Roles"

You mean to use a virtual machine hosted on HyperV as a DP?....Pretty sure yes, as other Site Systems are also supported in virtual environment

Here's a link how you install a DP on a Windows 7 Client

Another option without Clients with Distribution Point Role is Windows 7 / 8 Branch Cache.
The idea is, that each Client in a specific subnet which Downloads a package first, offers this to other Clients in the same scope, so that they do not have to download it again.

thanks for that.

In reference to HyperV, what I meant to say is can I actually use the HyperV server as a distribution point (not the VM running in HyperV)

Its a normal windows Server with a hyperv role, so yes you can pretty sure use it as DP
