While I'm no expert in virtualization, the people at VMware are, and they also
saw a certain speciousness in Microsoft's contention. And like me, they took
their concerns to the Internet.
I found this all based on the fine reporting of NetworkWorld's John Fontana,
whom I hired for the newsweekly. VMware, Fontana writes, wrote an entire
white paper contradicting Microsoft's claims.
What's really amazing is that a large company can crank out an 10-page white
paper less than a week after the topic comes to the fore.
Microsoft didn't write a white paper in response. Instead, an executive wrote
a blog which reads more like a white paper. More interesting than the blog
are the fawning comments underneath from what are obviously Microsoft employees!
