Changes to Virtual Server and VMWare support

There’s a couple of new changes on support for virtualization software one of them is the change to support for Exchange Server under Virtual Server that we've earlier reported would happen as part of Exchange 2003 Sp2, this is still true but apparently Virtual Server R2 or later will also be required.

On another story Microsoft also changed the support policy for other non-Microsoft hardware virtualization software (a.k.a. VMWare). Now they will provide “commercially reasonable efforts” to test the software - but only for Premier Support customers and furthermore they may require a reproduction "independently from the non-Microsoft hardware virtualization software" ;-)
