PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
That's the word from Microsoft - Longhorn will have virtualization support built into it.

This could actually be good for users who want to run some older games, especially if it allows full hardware access (unlike Virtual PC, which runs a "default" set of hardware in emulation).

At WinHEC, Microsoft officials showed diagrams with the planned Windows hypervisor code layer, which will divide a system's resources among different virtual machines. Longhorn users will be able to configure the operating system for a virtualization "role," stripping out unneeded functionality in a so-called MinWin configuration, said Werther. But, he added, it's still not clear if the hypervisor technology will make the firstrelease of Longhorn Server that's due in 2007.
