Yes, work which requires no 3D API use whatsoever. That's becoming more and more rare.

For sure, but with VMWare supporting it - I think its only a matter of time before someone figures out how to do it. Its entirely possible that they already know how to do it, but just haven't got it implemented yet. Or they are waiting for Windows 9

I agree that there really shouldn't be a technical reason why they cannot do this - especially if they support only the D3D API and require a certain DirectX level on the host.

For what its worth, I've run some older games in VMWare with good results. From the testing I've done with it so far, at least for me, it makes more sense to continue using VMWare on my desktop but to use Hyper-V on my servers.
