In a surprising move, the Linux Foundation, the non-profit organization dedicated to Linux, announced on April 15th at the Linux Collaboration Summit that the Xen Project, the open-source hypervisor, is becoming a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project.
Xen, which is now 10-years old, is an open source virtualization platform licensed under the GPLv2 with a similar governance structure to the Linux kernel. Citrix has been Xen's commercial backer since 2007. However, as the project experiences contributions from an increasingly diverse group of companies, Xen is looking to The Linux Foundation to be a neutral forum for providing guidance and facilitating a collaborative network. This new project is going by the old name: Xen Project.
