Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Both software similar. The key difference is that Virtual Server is a Type 2 Hypervisor, which means it is hosted on top of Windows and Hyper-V is a Type 1 Hypervisor, which is run on the bare metal. Hyper-V has better performance and scalability but does require x64 hardware. Virtual Server can run on top of Windows 2003 and 2008 and has other features that would be useful to older hosts.
