Virtually Late

Microsoft, locked in a pitched battle over virtualization with VMware, is seeing some key products slip. Delayed products include Virtual Server 2005 and a test version of Windows Server virtualization (dubbed "Viridian").

These delays are far from fatal. I expect the VMware/Microsoft virtualization war to rage for years.
