More confirmation reaching our way that Microsoft's Virtual Server 2005 SP1 will indeed support Linux. Microsoft intends for Microsoft products to include Linux and other OS support, allowing users to administer mixed networks.

According to Network World Fusion, Steve Ballmer declared that Microsoft will offer support for the computers that donít have Windows on them, but are connected to one of the Virtual Server nodes of the company. "Emulating is one of the key features desired by Microsoft, and in our vision, this is the way to improving compatibility and decreasing TCO (total cost of ownership)".
