| virtualization ring back in February when it announced it was creating a

Red Hat makes KVM its Linux virtualization of choice

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite Red Hat surprising announcement last week that it would be
| partnering with Microsoft on virtualization, on February 23rd, Red Hat
| announced that it would be switching its virtualization strategy from a mix
| of virtualization programs, including the Microsoft-friendly Xen, to focusing
| on Linux baked-in KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine)
| KVM, as Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens admitted during a press call, is still a
| work in progress. But, Stevens assured the audience, by working with IBM and
| Intel, Red Hat will be able to deliver its full Red Hat Virtualization
| portfolio within the next 12-months. The first fruits of this switch will
| appear in RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 5.4, which is due out in August
| 2009.
