Welcome to VMworld

Yesterday I got up early, kissed the family goodbye and made the monstrous multi-stop airplane journey to Las Vegas. You might think the author of a prestigious newsletter such as Redmond Report would travel in style, but like many of you I'm purely a coach potato. Traveling in that crowed stockade they call a fuselage makes me appreciate where I'm going.

And that is VMworld, where I was instantly joined by 10,000 to 14,000 other virtualization freaks. Today and the rest of the week I'll give you hands-on reports from the show, along with a smattering of what's going on in the rest of the computing universe.
