This Launch Really Is Virtual
Microsoft has a crazy product launch strategy. While it always has a monster
press conference, sometimes the launch is before the product(s) ships, sometimes
when the product(s) ships and sometimes after the product(s) ships.
In the case of Microsoft's Sept.
8 virtualization launch, it looks like all of the above.
The company already has application virtualization tools it bought from SoftGrid
(available only to those with top-tier license deals with Redmond), is currently
running Hyper-V through the manufacturing process, and is close to finishing
Virtual Machine Manager 2008.
Hopefully, there will be a few surprises for all the reporters trudging up
to Redmond for this virtual shindig.
