Microsoft & CentOS, now we need Ubuntu +???

A recent news story that has been all over the web these days is CentOS will now be a 1st class citizen on Microsoft Hyper-V and some hints that CentOS will be supported in System Center.  Having Microsoft support a FLOSS system natively on CentOS is an awesome fact and a cause for great excitement.

However I’m left wondering where is Ubuntu?  The biggest concern for me would be if CentOS became supported on System Center.  Canonical has spent a lot of time working on Landscape and the cloud but very little support on the enterprise and enterprise support.

Imagine if Ubuntu became a 1st class citizen on Hyper-V?  I think the internets would explode with different conspiracy theories etc

One thought on “Microsoft & CentOS, now we need Ubuntu +???

  1. they are only doing that to irritate RedHat. CentOS is RHEL without the branding and support. You pay RedHat for the supported enterprise version. They are “supporting” CentOS in the hope that people won’t provide revenue for RedHat. Quite what the support consists of other than “it works” I do not know.
