Microsoft is acquiring some assets of Connectix, including Virtual PC, the popular emulation software that allows Windows to run on a Mac, reports c|net. “Representatives of the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant said Virtual PC for the Mac will continue to be sold and that Microsoft plans to continue developing the software, which has more than 1 million active users. A Microsoft executive said the company did not purchase the software to kill it, nor does Microsoft plan to stop developing its native Macintosh software, such as the Mac OS X version of Office.” Microsoft, which plans to announce the deal on Thursday, declined to comment on financial terms. Some Connectix employees will join Microsoft, although no details were provided. The company will also gain control of an unreleased server virtualization product that Connectix is developing.
