Just for curiousity.  From what I read, Hyper-V is a bare metal hypervisor.  But it seems odd if it's running a role of my host OS, is it a bare metal hypervisor?  I left the VMs running, opened up a notepad and wrote some stuff on it and rebooted my pc.  I then went back in.  It shows the VM just started in Hyper V, but the OS shows it never rebooted and the notepad was still up with the stuff I wrote.  So, I'm not sure if the VM stayed running during the reboot or if it was hibernated or something.  Just curious.
