Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) 1.0 SP1 Release Candidate Available for Windows 7

Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) 1.0 SP1 Release Candidate enables deployment and management of Microsoft Virtual PC to address key enterprise scenarios, primarily resolving application compatibility with a new version of Windows.
Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) removes the barriers to Windows upgrades by resolving application incompatibility with Windows Vista or Windows 7.  MED-V delivers applications in a Virtual PC that runs a previous version of the operating system (for example, Windows XP).  And it does so in a way that is completely seamless and transparent to the user. Applications appear and operate as if they were installed on the desktop, so that users can even pin them to the task bar.  For IT administrators, MED-V helps deploy, provision, control, and support the virtual environments.
Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization is an integral tool in the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, a dynamic solution available to Software Assurance customers that helps reduce application deployment costs, enable delivery of applications as services, and better manage and control enterprise desktop environments.
Similarly to MED-V 1.0, MED-V 1.0 SP1 will leverage Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 to provide an enterprise solution for Application compatibility, and enabling the deployment of Virtual PCs across the enterprise. (Thanks JC)
