Novell and Ximian Virtual Iron Software continued on its quest to push Linux and virtualization further into the heart of enterprise data centers today with an announcement that Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 would support its virtualization and data center management platform. Novell will now ship a preconfigured kernel with SLES9 and has guaranteed that all existing independent software vendor certifications will not be affected.

And it doesn't matter what virtualization software you use, MS Virtual Server, VMware, etc.

Are you sure? I was under impression that you had to use the MS virtualization software, to use the flexible licensing.

I would be very interested if you have any source describing this.

Check out the last QA on this page. Apparently, the new usage rights apply when using non-MS virtualization, but Microsoft will only provide support if you are using MS Virtual Server 2005.
