Novell Accuses Red Hat of Flip-Flopping on Xen
Novell insists that Xen is just fine for the enterprise and that Red Hat thought so too until recently. (Linux-Watch)A virtual war is brewing between Red Hat and Novell on how ready Xen is for business use. In the latest development, Novell Chief Technology Officer Jeff Jaffe has accused Red Hat of flip-flopping in its support for the popular Linux virtualization software. Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens recently accused Novell of "being cavalier [with Xen]. We know what we need to be enterprise-ready and we already have a checklist of everything we need for that. They [Novell] have decided its more important to be first. Thats fine and maybe makes sense for them," he said.
Novell has an entirely different take on the matter.
