Hi Shamil:

I would recommend you contact Martin Reid as he is the Share-point guru. It
might save a week of two.

Subject: [dba-VB] OT: MS Office 2010 / MS SharePoint 2010 development system
box requirements - please advise

Hi All --

I'm looking to setup a system box here for MS Office 2010 / MS SharePoint
2010 development to be able to run something like the following "virtual"
development environment:

2010 Information Worker Demonstration and Evaluation Virtual Machine (SP1)

AFAIU that should better be  Intel i7 powered system with 8GB RAM etc, with
Hyper-V support running  64 bit Windows 2008 R2 Server Standard Edition at
least. Correct?

Although I do not have that much development which needs such a computing
power fully loaded all the time so I also wanted to share that system
between my family members who all have their own laptops etc. of different

Is that correct assumption/understanding that Hyper-V enabled Intel i7
Windows Server 2008 R2 system would also be a good host running several VMs
accessible via MS Windows Remote Desktops within my home/office network?

I'm also considering an option of "hobo-ing" St.Petersburg city with my
laptop and accessing that my "mighty" system via MS Windows Remote Desktop
via Internet - I have a broadband access to Internet from my home so my
running system should be available from outside using MS Windows Remote
Desktop if it has a fixed IP address?...

Please advise what are system box requirements for my development
environment I mentioned above...

Thank you.
