SWsoft sees future in multiplatform management

| Where Virtuozzo allows multiple virtual machines (VMs) to run on one machine
| using a single instance of the same operating system kernel -- either all
| Windows 2003, or all Linux -- Parallels Server will allow disparate operating

There appears to be only one hypervisor/manager that is hostile towards Linux.
Guess which one?


Microsoft flip-flops on Vista virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| Software like Parallels Desktop for the Mac or Microsoft's own Virtual
| PC for Windows allow multiple operating systems to run simultaneously.
| When it announced licensing rules for Vista last year, Microsoft said
| that only Vista Business and Vista Ultimate could run as guest
| operating systems. The company said virtualization presents inherent
| security risks and that it hoped by limiting which versions of the OS
| could act as virtual machines, only sophisticated users and businesses
| would employ the tactic.

| A number of people have asked me whether it's possible to install
| Linux onto a Virtual PC 2007 virtual machine. Well, since I had
| an Ubuntu ISO on my desktop I decided to give it a go.
| The short answer is no. It won't. I thought that it might but
| my optimism was short-lived. The graphics are all messed up.


A Software Maker [VMWare] Goes Up Against Microsoft

| When quizzed on Microsoft's plans, Mr. Ballmer replied, "Our view is

| operating system."

| The restrictions on virtualization were discussed here a couple of
| months ago, but now the more people are waking up to the EULA restrictions.
| MS claims it is "necessary for security reasons" and that only the "most
| technically savvy users, or people in companies with tech support,
| probably could handle Vista in virtualization programs, while home users
| should be steered away."
