The reporter from eWeek clearly misunderstood the presentation, as discussed by a few posters here and many other reporters and analysts.

Ironically, I spent 60 minutes detailing the work my lab is doing to enable virtualization of Linux on Windows and Windows on Linux.

We do enable both through our licenses, including our desktop operating systems. My statement in my presentation was that my lab was working on server virtualization interoperability and not on the desktop at this time.

There are more linux users reading these articles...........this happens because windows users are busy fixing their computers from crashing...........

Just download VMware and you have both Linux and Microsoft on your PC.

Linux companies don't formally support their products running on Windows in virtual form, so why should we expect Microsoft to? The linux fanboy community expects everyone to bend over backwards for them, while never expecting the same from their own companies.

Because Microsoft supports OpenSource.
But the Linux fanboy says "Go away Microsoft, you have done far to much damage already. Fix your software, and thanks for comming!!"

Microsoft did things for open source.......it killed open source......did u read the news about microsoft making baseless claims that Open Source violates its patents.If open source does violate let them go to court not just running their mouths offs......... I can not think of one single move by microsoft which helped Open Source. The only thing which helped linux was the release of Vista...............

Is it just me or is the only place where a clear "no virtualized Windows on Linux" is stated the title of the article? I find it hard to believe that their partnership with Novell and Xensource would end so fast (let alone their contract).

While MS is in partnership with Novell and Xensource, they're putting their emphasis on .NET and Java interoperability for now. As other commentors have pointed out, virtualization is already here - but MS is snubbing it for now. The article's been updated to reflect that reality.
==================================================
It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

Yes its true. Microsoft have been confusing people for many years now. But Microsoft forgets that the IT world is in need on moving towards a better future. Not the same old bitter past.

How are they blocking it? Or are they just not supporting it if there is problems? Vista and xp work fine in vmware. I think they are just feeling heat from vmware since their virtual pc blows ass.

I have WindowsXP running in a VM on Linux.
