| 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.

| For sysadmin types this means: do what you have to do with Xen for now. But 
| keep the investments small. For developers this means: don't let yourself be 
| tied to a platform. Use an abstraction layer such as libvirt to bridge over 
| the differences. For architects this means: don't looking to Xen for answers, 
| base your new designs on KVM.

| realistic competition right now. Microsoft is far behind and everybody else, 
| including XenSource, is a speck on the horizon.”
