"aw this virtualization shoot-out coming, and I'm not
surprised to see Novell on the Microsoft and Citrix side. I'm a
little puzzled that Red Hat, after its recent Microsoft
partnership, has decided to use KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine)
to support Windows Server instead of the ready-to-go XenServer.
After some thought, though, I think it's both that Red Hat wants to
steer clear of getting entangled with Microsoft and that the
Raleigh, NC-based company wants to deliver its own independent
top-to-bottom enterprise operating system stack."
