VMware proposes a new kind of OS

,----[ Quote ]
| In some respects, VDC OS is merely the next rung on the VMware hype ladder.
| After all, if the media is predicting that OS vendors will put you out of
| business, preemptively proclaiming the death of the traditional OS is a
| decent tactic. If you look past the marketing, however, VDC OS is actually a
| fascinating concept. If VMware manages to achieve half of what it promises,
| it could have significant implications for application developers and
| customers alike.

,----[ Quote ]
| The VDC OS is an attempt to extend the use of virtualization beyond the
| server, where it is widely used today, and apply the same principles to all
| the other hardware in a data center, including network switches and storage.

Virtualization: Linux's killer app

,----[ Quote ]
| Think about it. Even Microsoft supports running Linux on its Virtual
| Server product. Why would it do that? Wouldn't an OS partitioning
| technology, such as that used by OpenVz or Sun Solaris, be more in
| keeping with the kind of homogeneous environments that Microsoft
| would like to see? Why would Microsoft invest its resources to
| support a virtual machine technology that can only open the
| door to Linux in the datacenter?
