CentOS, Scientific Linux, OpenSUSE installed atop Hyper-V R2

In July, Microsoft contributed over 20,000 lines of source code to the Linux kernel under GPL V2. Linus Torvalds provided assessment: “I agree that it's driven by selfish reasons, but that's how all open source code gets written! We all "scratch our own itches".

In July, Microsoft contributed over 20,000 lines of source code to the Linux kernel under GPL V2. Linus Torvalds provided assessment: “I agree that it's driven by selfish reasons, but that's how all open source code gets written! We all "scratch our own itches". It's why I started Linux, it's why I started git, and it's why I am still involved. It's the reason for everybody to end up in open source, to some degree. So complaining about the fact that Microsoft picked a selfish area to work on’s just silly. Of course they picked an area that helps them. That's the point of open source - the ability to make the code better for your particular needs, whoever the 'your' in question happens to be.[…]”. And Jason Perlow was so intrigued by the new capabilities in Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 that he installed various Linux distros (CentOS, Scientific Linux, OpenSUSE) atop Hyper-V R2. This documented here with step-by-step instructions for each distro!
