In its latest move into virtualization, Microsoft said on Wednesday that it has bought Kidaro, a company that helps businesses manage their collection of virtual machines.

Microsoft said the technology will make it easier for businesses to manage application compatibility challenges, ultimately spurring faster Vista adoption as well as broadening the use of virtual machines within corporations.

"Virtual PCs can help businesses address a number of challenges around application compatibility, mobility and business continuity," said Shanen Boettcher, general manager of Windows product management at Microsoft, in a statement.
