comment Does SSD TRIM work with a 'Boot from VHD' scenario?
Since I asked this question almost 3 years ago, I thought I'd add a postscript. Basically my SSD is still going strong after 2 years of fairly solid VHD usage.

comment Why are Windows language packs different sizes?
The cow example makes no sense. I wanted to know why the language packs were (very) different sizes. Perhaps you didn't understand the question? The answers below would indicate other people did.

btw, I don't agree with the 'Closed as not constructive'. There are already clear answers provided, and they are not subjective.

comment Why are Windows language packs different sizes?
I completely agree that every language will have different storage requirements. However I didn't feel that was the whole answer considering there are often gaps of 60MB

comment Are there any limitations of Hyper-V inside Windows 8 client compared to Windows Server 2012?
The lack of RemoteFX was a surprise to me (I can't play video/games smoothly). Otherwise the other features seem to be relevant to data center's for the most part, therefore I can live with it.

comment Connect iPad to itunes running under Hyper-V under Windows 8
Thanks, that is a valid answer for a commercial option. However I was hoping to use the existing built in RDP USB functionality that 'should' work.

comment Can I put iTunes in Windows 7 XP Mode and sync an iPhone from within it?
This is true. Experienced on my Lenovo W520.

comment Connect iPad to itunes running under Hyper-V under Windows 8
I run a lot of virtual servers on my laptop. Since these are often used for customer demonstrations, I have as little software installed on my host as possible. You are correct in saying that my scenario would use more resources, however for the most part that client virtual machine will be in a saved state and not running.

That is correct, however I really dislike iTunes and would rather it was segregated. (The Windows XP mode in Windows 7 has served me very well in this respect)
