Microsoft Hyper-V Now Supports Linux-based CentOS


From PCWorld:
Customers can now run the CentOS flavor of Linux as a guest operating system in supported Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V environments, Sandy Gupta, general manager for marketing in Microsoft's Open Solutions Group, was due to announce at the Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco Monday.

Microsoft already supports Hyper-V environments that include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Suse Linux Enterprise Server. It added CentOS because it's a popular distribution for hosting providers, a market Microsoft hopes to do well in.
