"Microsoft introduced a new Web site to illustrate Microsoft's increasing capabilities for mixed environments and showcasing interoperability "evidence". From the increased capabilities and support for Linux on Hyper-V to System Center Operations Manager Cross Platform Extensions for monitoring Linux and UNIX, Microsoft can help you simplify and manage more of your data center," revealed Microsoft.
