Microsofts attempt to "Play Nice"

By jc williams ·
I just read an article in the latest copy of InformationWeek that M$ is promising to support Linux VM's under windows. Also to make it more interesting, M$ is offering Virtual Server 2005 R2 as a free download. SP1 of VirSrv2005 should be released next year sometime.

So, Windoze and Penguins and kiss and make up now?

It will be just a matter of time before someone develops a virus that will attack the hypervisor and render all of the VM's useless. Or, even better, develop a M$ virus that attacks Linux co-sessions :)
