Microsoft: Virtualization is not mature for customers?



This ZDnet Asia post is actually all about the Vista. And what Virtualization's maturity has got to do with it, is something I don't get it. Micrsoft's move to disallow virtualization for Vista will force users to just about shun Vista and go for Mac with Leopard.

According to the Gartner analyst, Microsoft's decision is derived from a license restriction, not a technical one. So, a consumer who wants to run Windows Vista under VMware on a Mac, for instance, will violate Microsoft's EULA, he added.


Yeah, Asia, Africa and S. America is no way interested in proprietary software. Reason? They feel not only abandoned by the expensive (and restrictive) licensing but, and this is more interesting, they are on a Open Source track. That having said, the technology shift has already taken place. Large states like TamilNadu (India) have flatly rejected such proprietary approaches.

It is a lot more political than you can think. I really don't think Microsoft even cares about the piracy issues like this post on Slashdot about Romania, read the comments and you'll see some really interesting posts and links!

Anyways, I wont take this post anymore off tangents, Virtualization is mature for the market, and for a pretty long time! Period!

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
