Windows and Linux, side by side

Captain's log, Sector 43, 3rd Quadrant, HELL. Temperature, -19 F:

Microsoft Corp. on Monday said it is teaming up with Linux supplier XenSource to allow computers to run the upcoming version of Microsoft's Windows server operating system on computers that are simultaneously running Linux software.

In the latest sign that it is dropping its resistance to Linux, Microsoft of Redmond, Washington is teaming up with Palo Alto, California-based XenSource to compete with VMware, now the biggest supplier of so-called ``virtualization'' software.

  1. Not to worry - they are just cooperating with the enemry so that they can put a backdoor in it, so that the running windows can sneak on the linux virtual machine and corrupt it while nobody is looking. In fact, they are planning a special virus API, so that viruses running on the windows machine could also effect the linux side.
