FreeBSD, Meet Hyper-V

Microsoft keeps making friends and influencing people in the open software world. Today it has a terrific détente with Novell, which leads to interoperability and support for Linux, and is a major supporter to the Linux code base and other open source projects.

Now comes word that FreeBSD will run as a host under Hyper-V, a nice little bit of interoperability normally the purview of tools such as Xen.

The project was announced this past October and is now being finalized -- though no release date has been set. With the growth of Linux, it seems BSD has been overshadowed.

You tell me where FreeBSD excels and where its future lies at dbarney@redmondmag.com!
