Microsoft Virtualization Strategy Coming Together

Let's not even pretend that this has been an interesting news week for Microsoft followers. Tonight's earnings will provide plenty of fodder, sure -- but, for the time being, it's a famine after last week's Worldwide Partner Conference news feast.

So, today, we have the final pieces of Microsoft's virtualization product offering falling into place. Specifically, we now know that Virtual Machine Manager will ship in the fourth quarter of calendar 2008 and will not have to be bundled with the over-named System Center Server Management Suite Enterprise.

So, whether you're psyched about Hyper-V or less than enthused, at least now you know more of the details. And that's what's passing for news this week.
