Client Hyper-V supports USB passthrough in 8.1
Hi guys, according to this blog post, client hyper-v can support USB passthrough. That's nice!
This MSDN article confirms it and specifies more local devices that VMs can interact with: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn282278.aspx. (It's also available on a server, just turned off by default.)
Bye-bye VMWare Workstation!
Edit: this was know in June, the passthrough is only active when you've opened VM window and it's supported only on Win 8.1 / Srv 2012 R2 guests. Nevermind then.
