Just Say No to Other Hypervisors

In a Q&A session, Maritz was asked about support for non-VMware hypervisors. He said, "At this point in time, we don't support hypervisors other than our own," adding that VMware isn't religious about hypervisors and it would consider it if there was enough demand.

After private conversations, it's clear that the door is open for other hypervisors. The trouble is in doing things like VMotion with Hyper-V et al. that are so easily accomplished with ESX.
