Sun, Microsoft virtualize together

Sun Microsystems, Microsoft agree to work to make each other's operating system easily virtualized within the other's OS

Sun Microsystems and Microsoft have agreed to work to make each other's operating system easily virtualized within the other's OS. Using each company's virtualization software, Microsoft Windows will eventually be able to run within Sun Solaris on x64 platforms, and Solaris will be able to run within Microsoft Windows Server, said John Fowler, Sun executive vice president of the systems group. Sun has also signed on to become an original equipment manufacturer for Microsoft, allowing Sun to sell servers running Windows Server 2003.
