What is Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V)?

MED-V is a desktop virtualization product planned to become part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) MED-V is based on Microsoft's acquisition of Kidaro, a company that made desktop virtualization tools, and aims to resolve a number of problems with application compatibility on newer OSs. One such problem is applications that run on Windows XP or Windows 2000 but aren't compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Vista. A large amount of testing and application "shimming" (a process that lies to an application to make it run on an OS it shouldn't) is required to make sure legacy applications will run on Vista. The effort needed can be a major obstacle to adopting newer OSs and it's quite possible that a given application simply can't run on Windows 7 or Vista. (PC, Tech)
