Bloor-ing...and wrong!

Robin Bloor writes for IT-Analysis("Linux To Become A De Facto Standard") about the inevitable triumph of Linux based on virtualization. The Register picks this up and re-publishes it. The thesis is that The so-called infrastructure initiatives: On Demand (IBM), Adaptive Enterprise (HP) and N1 (Sun) are creating a "virtualization imperative" which, of necessity, will rely on Linux. But if I wanted a virtualization layer that actually worked today, my choice would be VMWare Control Center running on an Intel platform. This further layer of abstraction then allows virtually instantaneous re-configurations of the hardware among most of the possible Intel-based operating systems, including Linux, Windows and NetWare. Let's see Sun do that!
