Hyper-V Embracing Open Source

Microsoft love to flirt with open source  --  it just won't commit. Its latest move solidifies an agreement to port Hyper-V to OpenNebula, an open source cloud project aimed at service providers.

This may not be entirely altruistic -- Citrix and VMware are already firmly in the OpenNebula camp.

Expect some early code this month.

How would you advise Microsoft on open source? You tell me and I'll share as long as you write me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
