My colleague Jim Ni had an email exchange with Robert Mitchell of Computerworld as a follow-up to Rob's informative article last week titled, "The Virtualization Procrastinators." Rob blogged about his exchange with Jim, in which Jim was correcting an inaccuracy about the description of the planned hypervisor in Windows Server Longhorn.
Port25, which is a blog for Microsoft's open source software lab, is casting an eye toward high-performance computing. They've tapped the talents and experiences of Frank Chism, a technology specialist by title here as Microsoft. As you can watch/listen to in this interview, Frank has earned his stripes working on HPC systems and clusters.
Today we announced that that same agreement now aplies to the virtual hard disk (VHD) image format used by Microsoft for encapsulating the OS and app within a virtual machine. Some early coverage has appeared in eWeek and CNET. And Sam posted an audio interview with XenSource's Simon Crosby at Port25.
Every now and again I use this blog to correct inaccuracies in the public domain. Mostly errors at media outlets. And usually I wouldn't comment on opinion pieces at Linux-Watch because the rhetorical debate would be fruitless. But one of our pals at Linux-Watch botched some facts while he was predicting doom and gloom for Windows Server, and the article was picked up by reputable media site eWeek. I'm not asking reporters (with editors) to spare the rod. Your critical eye helps us identify areas of improvement. But how about getting the facts right?
