"Over the last week or so, I've been putting the release code of Windows Server 2008 R2 as well as the free Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 release candidate through their paces and running a combination of both Windows and Linux virtual machines on them. The free Linux distributions I have had most success with running the Hyper-V LinuxICs on are CentOS 5.3, Scientific Linux 5.3, and OpenSUSE 11.1. In my limited testing, I only used 64-bit versions, because Windows Server 2008 R2 is 64-Bit only and I wanted to fully take advantage of the processing capability and native 64-bit virtualization of Hyper-V. However, the LinuxIC's should also install fine on the 32-bit versions of these systems.
