Why I’m staying with Debian

,----[ Quote ]
| And Debian, for all its endless squabbles and the posturing of some of its 
| developers, has overall proven itself a community I can trust. So, at least 
| for the time being, I’ll be sticking with Debian.  


On the other hand, by contract, this is astonishing:

XenSource dishes embedded hypervisor to OEMs


Hypervisor vendor adds "embedded" version


XenSource Offers Embedded Hypervisor for Server OEM's


XenSource unveils OEM edition


No menion of Linux. This is official: Microsoft hijacked XenSource, so Xen
needs to be forked or altogether abandoned.


Will Microsoft Buy the New Citrix?

| VMware, holding some 85 percent of the market, with its VI3 technologies 
| offers a fully integrated stack and represents a third generation of 
| virtualization technology, while Viridian and Xen-based products, including 
| SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, XenEnterprise 
| and Virtual Iron, remain second-generation products, the report stated.    


Heady Days for Virtual Systems

| company with a growing outpost in Redmond, Wash.


What the XenSource deal says about open source

,----[ Quote ]
| This is what Citrix is paying for. That and a close relationship with 
| Microsoft that looks likely to get closer. “We will be building dynamic 
| virtualization services and management tools on top of Viridian,” Levine 
| added. “We will build the same set of products we’ve built on top of Xen for 
| Viridian. We’ve already hired a team to go do that up in Redmond.”    
| While Citrix maintained it will continue support for the Xen project, this 
| deal is not about a proprietary vendor getting open source religion. It's 
| about grabbing an emerging player in a rapidly expanding sector of the 
| market.
