Combining the use of Linux with virtualisation is not such an odd pairing, rather, Kettler said, the two "play to one another very strongly", particularly when it comes to the re-emerging trend of virtualisation.
He said: "To encourage use of Linux for virtual environments is to make an easier way to do virtual machines."
Update: From Inquirer:
THE LOW-COST PC assembly business Michael Dell started in his college dorm seems poised to plonk virtualisation into both servers and consumer boxes. Speaking at LinuxWorld, Dell CTO Kevin Kettler let slip that the company plans to sell machines that will boot a hypervisor from flash memory.So is it some version of ESX lite or some ACE type version?
