JeOS: Death of the operating system?

,----[ Quote ]
| With the rise of virtualization and the 
| concept of a lightweight, Just enough 
| Operating System (JeOS), the traditional OS 
| could become a thing of the past.
| JeOS is stripped down to the bare 
| essentials necessary to run a particular 
| application -- a perfect fit for 
| virtualization, which allows many operating 
| systems to run concurrently on a single 
| host. The actual components in a JeOS 
| implementation may vary from one guest to 
| another, but the concept remains the same: 
| If it does not serve the needs of the 
| application, it doesn't need to be in the 
| OS.

Ubuntu on [Microsoft's] Virtual PC 2007 - No way dude!

,----[ Quote ]
| A number of people have asked me whether it's possible to install
| Linux onto a Virtual PC 2007 virtual machine.  Well, since I had
| an Ubuntu ISO on my desktop I decided to give it a go.
| The short answer is no.  It won't.  I thought that it might but
| my optimism was short-lived.  The graphics are all messed up.


Microsoft Says No Windows Virtualization on Top of Linux

Microsoft flip-flops on Vista virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| Software like Parallels Desktop for the Mac or Microsoft's own Virtual 
| PC for Windows allow multiple operating systems to run simultaneously. 
| When it announced licensing rules for Vista last year, Microsoft said 
| that only Vista Business and Vista Ultimate could run as guest 
| operating systems. The company said virtualization presents inherent 
| security risks and that it hoped by limiting which versions of the OS 
| could act as virtual machines, only sophisticated users and businesses 
| would employ the tactic.


Is need for control behind Microsoft's flip-flop?

,----[ Quote ]
| Meanwhile, Gartner analyst Michael Silver took Microsoft to task 
| for its continued restrictions.
| "Microsoft's policies...come off as a way to gouge customers," Silver 
| said in an e-mail, noting that customers are forced to pay for higher 
| priced editions, even though they don't get many of the benefits, like
|  the Aero user interface, which often won't work in a virtual machine.
| Silver argues that Microsoft is likely leaving money on the table. 
| "Allowing use of lower priced (editions) could even be worth more 
| money to Microsoft as it would likely increase the number of people 
| that would legally run a Microsoft OS in a VM (like on a Mac)," 
| Silver wrote. "Eventually they will have no choice but to make their 
| peace with virtualization."
