Redmond and Red Hat: Virtual Buds

Microsoft and Novell these days are better friends than Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza. Redmond recently reached a new détente with VMware owner EMC, and just this week Microsoft made nice with Red Hat.

The Red Hat deal makes sure that Linux runs as a host under Windows Server and that Windows Server runs as a host under Linux.

Technically speaking, this isn't a big deal. What is a big deal is each company's acknowledgement and agreement of support. It may seem minor, but agreements like this are a pretty big deal. Congrats to both parties.
