VMware CEO's Big Splash
New VMware CEO Paul Maritz stood in front of a crowd of (I'd have to guess)
thousands and, like Sarah Palin, gave
of his life. What's the difference between a former VMware CEO
and a pitbull? Lipstick. And if you put lipstick on Hyper-V, it's still Hyper-V.
No, Maritz really didn't say any of those things. In fact, that's probably
the lamest joke I've ever penned (send barbs my way at firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Maritz talk wasn't quite as well-received as Palin's convention speech.
Virtualization Review Editor Keith Ward wasn't
impressed, whereas I thought Martitz came across as thoughtful, highly technical
and one not afraid of pushing the envelope.
