Linux was long feared as different by the majority of users and while it's bringing itself into the limelight more and more with USB 3.0 inclusion, plenty of distros to choose from and even limited DX10 compatibility, it is still a little limited.
However some of those limitations for wide acceptance are lifting as you read, as Microsoft announce their release of Hyper-V Linux Integration Components (LinuxIC) - covered under the GNU General Public License.
Hyper-V is the latest generation virtualisation technology, and being covered under that license means that it's free for anyone to use - giving free kernel drivers and allowing greater performance.
This also makes Microsoft's virtualisation software a decent alternative to VMWare's competing product, giving a lot more flexibility for sysadmins and giving potentially lower costs.
Head over to CNET to read more about LinuxIC, via Bit-Tech.
