Intel and Novell announce virtual Windows to run unmodified on Linux

Novell and Intel have announced the availability of paravirtualized network and block device drivers that will allow Microsoft Windows Server 2000/2003/XP to run unmodified in Xen virtual environments on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 from Novell, operating on Intel-based server platforms featuring Intel virtualization technology.

Combined with the existing ability to host unmodified Linux on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, these new drivers will let customers migrate to newer and fewer energy-efficient servers, consolidating legacy Windows or Linux solutions onto virtual servers, say the companies.
