| Despite Red Hat’s surprising announcement last week that it would be 
| partnering with Microsoft on virtualization, on February 23rd, Red Hat’s 
| announced that it would be switching its virtualization strategy from a mix 
| of virtualization programs, including the Microsoft-friendly Xen, to focusing 
| on Linux’s baked-in KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine)    
| KVM, as Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens admitted during a press call, is still a 
| work in progress. But, Stevens assured the audience, by working with IBM and 
| Intel, Red Hat will be able to deliver its full Red Hat Virtualization 
| portfolio within the next 12-months. The first fruits of this switch will 
| appear in RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 5.4, which is due out in August 
| 2009.

| Asked by CBR when Red Hat will be able to offer the KVM technology as part of
| Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the firm’s president and CEO Jim Whitehurst said it
| is “highly likely” that it would be during calendar 2009 but would not be
| drawn further.
