Microsoft Consumers cannot run home versions of Windows Vista as virtual machines because virtualization is not mature enough for broad adoption, says Microsoft. They claim "that consumers don't understand the risks of running virtual machines, and they only want enterprises that understand the risks to run Vista on a VM".

With this kind of attitudes, Microsoft is getting isolated from the community.

I feel the people is getting tired and tired of its arrogance, its business model and its way of "protecting the customer" with a lot of prohibitions. Maybe it's offtopic, but the MS model is the same model that the US goverment uses with us, the small countries, to "protecting" us: blocking our economies, saying what to do and what not to do, etc.

Let's move to BSDs, OpenSolaris and/or Linux; OSes in power of the community and being developed by the community.
