Billy Marshall has much to say in favor or Red Hat's Qumranet acquisition, which is saying something.
First beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 replaces the Xen hypervisor with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine from Qumranet, which Red Hat bought in '08.
Surprise! The KVM open-source virtualization software is at the foundation of a desktop virtualization software start-up's business.
Red Hat bought Qumranet primarily for its KVM open source project. But virtual desktops may be a better fit with Red Hat than they appear at first glance.
Linux seller buys Qumranet, an open-source virtualization company, for what sources say is roughly $100 million. The acquisition gives Red Hat an instant Microsoft solution.
