Hyper-V V3 client hypervisor

There are strong rumours the next version of Windows 8 will have a hypervisor which enables to run multiple operating systems. Instead of the current version of Hyper-V running on servers which has a rather fat parent partition, Windows 8 is rumoured to have a small and lean parent partition which codename is MinWin (MinimalWindows?)

Earlier Microsoft France leaked some information on the intention of Microsoft to develop a client hypervisor.

At Being Manam an article can be read describing a patent Microsoft filed which shows a hypervisor and a general purpose operating with several virtual machines running on top of it.
