    "Microsoft and XenSource™ -- a Strategic Relationship
     
    Microsoft and XenSource have signed a collaborative agreement to develop interoperable virtualization solutions. The two companies will cooperate on the development of technology to provide interoperability between Xen-enabled Linux guest operating systems and the new Microsoft hypervisor-based Windows Server virtualization."

    Virtualisation is big business whether server or software.

    It would seem that Microsoft and XenSource know that the company to catch is VMWare in this market, hence the strategic relationship.

    Also, if proof ever was needed that Microsoft is competitive with Linux but not against it. The relationship demostrates this as it's good business for both companies. It's good for the market as VMWare could in time have some decent competition, which is good for us the consumer.
