Real Problems in Virtualization for Microsoft
First, Microsoft throws a wrench into Vista upgrades for Mac owners citing
concerns about virtualization and security. Then, VMware, virtualization king
of the jungle, attacks Microsoft for "trying to restrict customers' flexibility
and freedom to choose virtualization software by limiting who can run their
software and how they can run it" (and Mary Jo Foley thinks she might smell
). Is Microsoft stumbling
all over itself with its virtualization "strategy"?
Hard to say,
but there could be a couple of showdowns coming for Redmond with this vital
new technology. Stay tuned.
