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 under Hyper-V 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?
