Source 03 April 2006

Co-inciding with the announcment of Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition being free,
it was also announced that Virtual Machine Additions for Linux
additions are available for download along with the list of varients
which will be supported:

-Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 (update 6)
-Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (update 6)
-Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
-SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9
-Red Hat Linux 7.3

To sign-up for these additions, visit
and logon with a passport account. Click on Available Programs and
apply for "Virtual Machine Additions for Linux". The status will be
marked as Pending for now.  - soon after you will be granted access
rights and have the ability to download them.

There will shortly be a KB article available documenting the list of
Linux OS's available (I'll post the link up as soon as I have it), and
similarly the information will be maintained under

It's also worth pointing out what capabilities the Virtual Machine Additions for Linux provide:
- Improved Mouse & Video interaction
- Guest Heartbeat detection
- Time Syncronisation
- Host co-ordinated shutdown
- Improved SCSI disk emulation

There will be further releases of the Virtual Machine Additions for
Linux which will co-incide with the release of Virtual Server 2005 R2
SP1 - more details on this to follow shortly.

More details on all of this can be found on the Microsoft Presspass site
