Submission + - Red Hat's Virt Manager for Linux Requires Windows (internetnews.com)

darthcamaro writes: You run an all Linux environment and have supported Red Hat's vision of Linux and open source. So you go to check out their new Virtualization Manager tool to continue the loyalty and Linux love right? WRONG. Red Hat wants you to buy Windows. No joke. The new Red Hat Enterprise Linux Virtualization Manager requires users to run Windows.

"The Windows Server could be running as a virtual server in RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), but you would require a Windows machine for the management system," Andy Cathrow, product marketing manager for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, told InternetNews.com. "We spent a lot of time talking to customers to see what their view was on this and I think with the possible exception of Red Hat, everyone has some Windows in their datacenter."
