This is nothing more than a link to a great post from Mike Neil on our progress with Redhat. There is now cooperative support from both companies when running select applications on either virtualization product, being Hyper-V or KVM.

Also a very important piece of the post is the fact that the Microsoft contribution of the Integration Components source code has made it to the Linux kernel tree. This means any Linux distribution can compile these and leverage the components for optimal performance running on Hyper-V!
