Virtual Windows

A few features are not fully implemented, and, of course, there are numerous bugs in the code. Above all, Microsoft may well announce more new features in the course of the development process. Thus, administrators of smaller environments, who do find many interesting new features in the list now, may still have something to look forward to. One thing is certain: The final release will certainly offer more for this important customer group.
