Hyper-V Machines taking forever to delete?

Ben Armstrong explains the process Hyper-V goes through when you decide to delete a VM. Very informative, thanks Ben.

If you want the quick and short version: apply the very first snapshot (if any) to your VM and then delete it. Otherwise, you'll have to sit through a snapshot merge.
