Virt Tool MultiPoint Update Prepped

Microsoft has so many virtualization tools  that it is hard to keep track of them all. One that always slips my mind is MultiPoint Server, a tool that some of you apparently like a lot.

MultPoint 2012 is on the way, and if you are a fan you might want to get on the beta list.

The product is aimed at low-end users -- such as schools or smalls shops. MultiPoint is simple and the name actually refers to how the product works. A single server offers desktops or terminals virtual sessions. The new version will support Windows 8, a feature built upon its existing Windows 7 support.
