Hyper-V Runs Solaris -- With a Little Help
Sun and Microsoft get along fine now, thanks to a 2004 deal where Microsoft
paid the Mountain View computer concern some $1.8 billion to settle Sun's lawsuits.
That's why I'm sure that neither company is complaining about Transitive Corp.'s
QuickTransit software which allows Solaris apps -- even those written for SPARC
processors -- to run
on Intel boxes.
The most interesting part of Transitive might not be its product, but one of
its advisors. Dr. Mendel Rosenbaum is a technical advisor to Transitive. Virtualization
buffs may recognize that as the name of VMware's co-founder and chief scientist.
Is it any wonder, then, that QuickTransit also works with VMware?
