NetworkWorld: On Tuesday, Microsoft released a beta version of Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) 2.0 that it says will help enterprise customers make the switch to Windows 7. "MED-V is a bridge to help you create a longer-term plan for your more complex applications that may not be compatible with Windows 7 and are too costly to migrate at this exact moment," explained Microsoft's Karri Alexion-Tiernan. "MED-V can accelerate your migration to Windows 7 by removing legacy application barriers. It delivers a seamless user experience, consolidates legacy desktop hardware and allows users to access the legacy applications from a single desktop experience."
Version 2.0 of the software also simplifies password use and improves on USB device sharing.
