Joe, what drives are you going to use to test with and what OS will you try? (all of them...I know)
I'm planning to start out playing with a SSD for the OS and use the 250 that comes with for my VHD's till HD prices come down. I'm thinking of starting with 2008 R2 and see how that performs with Hyper-V. I have an old 750 (7200 RPM) that I may put in for data and a 2T green I could put in for backups.
Hopefully next weekend or the one after. Very short on time right now.
Further down the road I'd like to see about trying to load ESXi 5 via a flash on the MB.
I'm a real novice at this so it will be a learning experience
