Hello Ubuntu community,
I’m a Program Manager at Microsoft on the Hyper-V team. If you’ve ever run Ubuntu in Hyper-V, you’ve probably noticed the experience is missing out on some essential creature comforts–things like clipboard or drive redirection. We want to change this, and we want Ubuntu to be the distro where we focus our efforts initially.
Our investigation has led us to contribute to the open source project XRDP and leverage the work that the folks at XRDP have done to enable a better experience through Hyper-V. We’re partnering with Canonical to ensure the Bionic Beaver experience will be a turn-key experience.
If you’re interested in testing out the feature, we’d love to have you along for the ride. We’ve written a blog post that details the steps required to get the feature set up in Hyper-V.
We’d love to hear any feedback you have.
