Re: Oracle; I've read the top blogs on this subject (Chad's, The Reg's and Chuck Ellis's) - great reads.

Also, a clear message that the hypervisor field is becoming cutthroat - Oracle ramming their OVM down every customer throat is not cool (although may make sense from Larry's perspective?).

He who owns the hypervisor owns "The System"??? It is definitely shaping up to be so.


Last week "we" decided on going VMware for windows VM, and Oracle VM for Linux, we will see what happens once we start testing.

This is probably why Oracle downplays compatibility/support for VMware;
