A few days ago we pointed out Xandros' appearance at a Spanish show organised by Microsoft. They work alongside Microsoft now, at the exclusion of others. Here is the latest press release (appended at the bottom in full).

Microsoft TechEd -- Xandros, the leader in making Windows and Linux work together, today announced an extended line of BridgeWays Management Packs that enable system administrators to monitor and manage 13 enterprise applications on Windows, Linux and UNIX from a single console.


Although it sounds extremely unlikely, one reader told us a few hour hours ago: "I just heard that Novell is designing the OS for Windows 7. I live in Provo Utah and heard it from an insider that Novell is designing it w/ a flavor of Linux. I guess that M$ even admits that NT is loaded w/ security and stability issues."




Xandros Announces Broad Series of Cross-Platform Management Packs at Microsoft TechEd Show



BARCELONA, SPAIN -- 11/03/08 -- Microsoft TechEd -- Xandros, the leader in making Windows and Linux work together, today announced an extended line of BridgeWays Management Packs that enable system administrators to monitor and manage 13 enterprise applications on Windows, Linux and UNIX from a single console. BridgeWays Management Packs are designed to help extend the cross platform monitoring capabilities of the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 to heterogeneous environments. Xandros today released a beta Management Pack for Oracle Database Server, together with updates to previous betas for Apache and MySQL. Developed under the broad collaboration agreement between Microsoft and Xandros, more cross-platform management packs will follow shortly, including IBM DB2 Database Server, Oracle Application Server, IBM WebSphere, JBoss, Tomcat, BlackBerry Enterprise Server, Sendmail, Postgres Database Server, Postfix, and VMWare ESX. The entire series of BridgeWays Management Packs for the Red Hat Enterprise server, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, UNIX, and Windows, will be released in sync with the general availability of the System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 release.

"Customers' environments are often comprised of a variety of operating systems and applications, but they want a single solution for managing and monitoring across their Windows, UNIX and Linux infrastructures, such as is delivered by the beta of System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2," said Larry Orecklin, General Manager, System Center and Virtualization Marketing at Microsoft. "By working closely with us and applying their expertise in open source, Xandros is playing a key role in extending the management benefits of System Center to heterogeneous environments and applications such as Apache, MySQL and now Oracle Database Server running on these various platforms."

"Our initial cross-platform BridgeWays Management Packs received an overwhelming response from hundreds of enterprises, with requests to extend our services to most mission-critical services. We are proud to announce a broad-and-deep extension of our BridgeWays line to enable system administrators to centrally manage 13 key enterprise applications on heterogeneous platforms," said Andreas Typaldos, CEO of Xandros. "Thanks to the cross platform monitoring capabilities in System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, we are able to quickly go to market with management packs for a diversity of applications and platforms tailored to our knowledge of real-world customer experiences, gained during extensive beta tests."

Showcased at Microsoft TechEd EMEA

The Management Packs betas for Oracle Database Server, Apache and MySQL, along with a preview of BridgeWays for VMWare ESX, are showcased at the Xandros stand, no. 6, in the Microsoft Systems Center Partner Pavilion at the Microsoft TechEd EMEA IT Professionals Conference in Barcelona, Spain, November 3-7. The beta software is also available as a free download for testing and review from the Xandros web site at https://shop.xandros.com/beta/bmp/index.php.
