VMware-Google deal gives Chrome Operating System credibility

This packed edition of This Week in Virtualization features news on VMware's support for the Google Chrome Operating System, Microsoft's Linux drivers for Hyper-V and more.

VMware will virtualize the Google Chrome Operating System when it comes out late next year, the company confirmed this week.

That news highlighted a busy week in the server virtualization market. Aside from the VMware-Google Chrome OS story, there was also major news from Microsoft. The company issued three drivers -- part of 20,000 lines of code -- designed to help Linux operating systems run better on Hyper-V, and it also released Hyper-V R2 to manufacturing.

This edition of This Week in Virtualization recaps all these stories and features an interview with virtualization expert Greg Shields, a partner with Concentrated Technology, who discusses the Microsoft-Linux news in depth.
