Red Hat and Microsoft signed reciprocal agreements to expand server virtualization interoperability: "Red Hat will validate Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows 2000 Server SP4, and Windows Server 2008 guests on Red Hat Enterprise virtualization technologies. Microsoft will validate Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 and 5.3 guests on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V (all editions) and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008." The 451 CAOS Theory blog notes that the "agreement does not appear to be a repeat of the one Microsoft struck with Novell" since the deal involves no patent or IP licensing.
