KVM, a new virtualization technology that lets Linux computers run multiple operating systems simultaneously, has won a significant endorsement from Red Hat.

Red Hat, the dominant Linux seller, will include KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) in the next version of its hobbyist Linux version, Fedora, Chief Technology Officer Brian Stevens said Tuesday. "We're packaging it for Fedora 7," Stevens said.

The endorsement comes on the heels of another significant KVM achievement that bodes well for its adoption: Linux leader Linus Torvalds accepted KVM into the main Linux source code tree in February, a move that makes maintenance and debugging easier and gives projects a higher profile.
