OSNews, Generic OSes IT managers gathered in New York City earlier this week to get advice from experts on when, why and how to virtualize their server environments. The takeaway from the conference? If you want to run an enterprise-class virtualization platform in production today, stick with VMware.

I've been using VMWare here to evaluate mostly hybrid configurations of software and use a Windows 2000 VM as my workstation.

Considering that MS didn't have anything marketable as virtulatization for the good number of years that VMWare had market share, I would say that the title alone is about as accurate as a perfect right angle.

My boss didn't seem to think VMWare was worth anything until I showed him many proofs of concept installs of Gentoo, SuSE as an Samba/LDAP directory, thin client, etc.
