Intel investing in open source



PClinuxonline.com is reporting that there is a zdnet article concerning Intel’s investment in Open Source software. Specifically the article is about Intel’s support of the Xen Virtualization Technology Project which is being integrated into the Linux Kernel.


The virtualization server hypervisor allows several operating systems to run on the same hardware simultaneously. Intel is releasing support for Virualization Technology into their chips this year, Windows won’t support it for two to three years, Linux support is already available. Xen isn’t the only example of Intel’s support of Open Source according to the article. It goes on a bit to talk about the market for Desktop Linux which is considered to be more competitive in areas where Windows doesn’t already have high saturation (not much surprise…)
