Am at VMware's first conference in UK. And of course I'm bored! It's basically a sales event, which is strange as everyone here is either a partner or customer - preaching to the converted etc. I remember first seeing VMware on a friend's pc at Imperial (Tony W running linux on Windows on linux, yucks!) in 97 or 98! Crikey, at this rate I'll be a veteran, like all those around me who hark back to the 3.51 and Novell days, or worse! Anyway, this event should be focussing more on the latest clever additions to the product, and the 'appliance' movement. I presume that the hypervisors will be moved into hardware very soon, and Infiniband provide the eGenera scale-out capabilities. So when is the next coffee break? :)
