xen$ource. $500m.

citirx buys xensource for $500m. <finger-near-mouth>five hundred miiiiilion dollars</finger-near-mouth>. muhahahaha.

congrads to the guys/gals at xensource. they are a group of incredibly smart people and they deserve all the success. i'm surely going to start asking those who will be millionaires for free meals.

i knew they'd be going places, but i never knew they would be thrust into an acquisition so quickly.

it is going to be interesting how xensource will maintain their position and relationship amongst the open source community, especially now that citrix's market cap is nearly the size of redhat and novell combined.
