1:

With VMware holding the keys to the hypervisor layer and management, then the platform layer, and even the cloud applications layer with email from Zimbra, and presentations from Slide Rocket, why do I need Windows?

Really? Is that all the applications the author uses? or thinks businesses use?

2: Addition to the summary by Fergy: "... and because VMware is cloudy".

Not a good read.
