Intel "Intel and VMware announced today that Intel Capital is taking a USD 218.5 million stake in virtualization company VMWare. Intel will purchase 9.5 million Class A shares at USD 23 per share, which, at the completion of VMware's forthcoming IPO, will give Intel about a 2.5 percent stake in the company. Because VMware's stock is split between Class A shares, which have less voting power, and Class B shares, Intel won't control that many votes in the company, but they will get a board seat."

"This must drive the author of QEMU crazy ;) "

1) QEMU is not practical for average joe (too slow for anything but testing, much less server consolidation [which is where the money is])

2) If you want to make money, don't give away code for free
