Q:
Steve asked: Will there be a release of Software Virtualization for Servers in addition to the solution for clients? If you could please reply at your earliest convenience, I would greatly appreciate it!

A:
Hey Steve, SVS 2.0 is supported on all flavors of Windows 2000, XP and 2003 (except for XP Embedded), when used as a single-user client/workstation or personal computer.

The next release (Lightning) will be supported on servers (including terminal servers). The product will be added to Server Management Suite (at some level TBD) at that time.

Lightning is a 2008 deliverable. After 2.1 ships, then we will get into the nitty gritty of project planning for Lightning. Regardless, I won't give you a target date. :)
