Found this story while surfing the net, seems that the management software for Red Hat’s virtualization software needs to be run from a Windows Server, they say that they will have a Linux version ready around 2010, but at the time of this story and for a little while anyways, you will need some sort of Windows box to managed the virtual environment. Read the insert below and then check out the full story.

“As a major Linux vendor, one might expect that Red Hat’s new Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) for Servers solution would be able to run on Linux servers.

You’d be wrong. Not only is that not the case, but the Management Server piece of RHEV, which provides virtualization management capabilities, requires users to be running Microsoft’s Windows Server.

That’s no typo: A Linux vendor is requiring its users to run one of its key new products on the rival, closed source Windows operating system.”

Here is the link to the full article.
