Are You Serious? (Sun Partnering with Microsoft)

| The good news is everyone paid attention. The bad news is it spawned a lot of
| questions - which I thought I'd answer here.

Dell Creating Consumer PCs Complete with Virtualization

| And in a similar fashion to what Parallels and VMware Fusion did for the
| Intel-based Mac community, this could give the Linux operating system a boost

| Dell CTO Kevin Kettler today confirmed these plans during a speech here at
| LinuxWorld, saying the company expects to see major performance and

Virtualization: Linux's killer app

,----[ Quote ]
| Think about it. Even Microsoft supports running Linux on its Virtual
| Server product. Why would it do that? Wouldn't an OS partitioning

| keeping with the kind of homogeneous environments that Microsoft
| would like to see? Why would Microsoft invest its resources to
| support a virtual machine technology that can only open the
| door to Linux in the datacenter?

Virtualisation gets trendy

| The fact that so many areas of IT are affected by virtualisation is
| perhaps testament to how fundamental a concept it is to separate
| computer resource from the underlying physical hardware and
| demonstrates this is a strategic issue with a broad impact
| that has to be considered at the highest levels of IT management.
