now at first there isnt anything really funny about it until you consider this. IBM has only updated its virtualization software AFTER another vendor did (Sun, HP, OSS, etc...). IBM released a product and then plays catch up to every comopany's new release, the "me too" game.

Really? IBM has had virtualization technology since the late 60s. First on the mainframe platform starting with the OS level with CP/67 which became VM/370, VM/SP/ VM/ESA and today z/VM, and then as a Hypervisor in microcode as PR/SM and LPARs. This technology has trickled down to AS/400 (now System i) and now recently to System p.
