Rather OT'ish, but considering the recent warm relationship between MSFT
and XenSource, I've got a very bad feeling about having our virtualized
(Good one) future dependent on anything-remotely-Microsoft. It's not
like Microsoft never bribed one company behind closed doors to sue
OSS/Linux. (*Cough* SCO *Cough*)
Having Fedora adopt, even as a second, less supported option, OpenVZ is
a good way to hedge off our collective bet. (Plus, it'll go a long way
to help OpenVZ's patches into the mainline kernel tree)
