Novell, Virtual Iron Embed VFe-Capable Kernel into SLES 9
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

If you are taking on Red Hat in the commercial Linux marketplace, as Novell is doing, you have to work harder, partner more broadly, and get a wider variety of useful technologies into your Linux distribution. This is one reason why Novell was quick to grab the open source Xen virtual machine hypervisor and embed it into its SUSE desktop distribution and weave it into the future SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10. This is also the reason why Novell has partnered with Virtual Iron to bring a special version of SLES 9 to market support Virtual Iron's brand of virtualization. READ MORE >

VMware Gives Away Updated GSX Server for Free
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

As many of us in the industry have been saying, the creation of an open source virtual machine monitor, or hypervisor as it is commonly called, would put pressure on any company that sells virtual or logical machine partitioning or has added it to their systems and servers as some sort of differentiation. The original open source hypervisor project, Xen, has been joined by the OpenVZ project, which is an open source, Linux-only version of SWsoft's Virtuozzo product. READ MORE >

Linus Nixes GPL v3 for Linux, Sun Ponders It for Solaris
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

As we reported in The Linux Beacon two weeks ago, the first draft of Version 3 of the GNU General Public License is out there for public comment, and interestingly, Linux creator, Linus Torvalds, says that he has no plans to move the Linux kernel from GPL v2 to GPL v3 and Sun Microsystems president and chief operating officer, Jonathan Schwartz, says that Sun is pondering the possibility of distributing Solaris and other software under GPL v3.

IBM, Freescale Reunite for the Sake of the Power Processors
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The launch of the PowerPC Alliance was nearly 15 years ago, and one of the partners on the Power chip, Apple, has abandoned the three-way partnership and shacked up with chipmaker Intel. For the past several years, as IBM went its way with Power4, Power5, and PowerPC 970 chips for servers and Cell and other custom chips for games and electronics machines, it has drifted away from former PowerPC partner Motorola, which actually went so far as to spin out the PowerPC chip business as a standalone unit called Freescale Semiconductor.
