What does this all mean? For one, it is open source and ready for you to play with. KVM also turns Linux into a hypervisor, which can allow other guest operating systems to run in its space. It could potentially be an alternative to VMware one day. This flexibiliy is where VARs can make a difference. VARs are in the position not only to help roll out and support the product, but also to optimize it and make it better.
The beauty of open source lends itself to innovation, and who better then to drive the innovation than Linux partners wanting to make an impact?
