Microsoft to Make Virtual Server Free

Microsoft has a big surprise planned for not just those of its own customers using virtualization, but for those in the open-source community as well. On April 3, the software giant will use the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in Boston to announce that it is making its Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition product available as a free download from the Microsoft Web site. On a related note, “XenSource has prepped its first major charge at Microsoft Windows customers with a new package that includes the open source Xen hypervisor along with some management software.”
