Microsoft's Cloud Computing
I went to the Microsoft Virtualization Summit today in Irvine, CA. It ended up being about how all the components of virtualization aggregate into cloud computing, how to use cloud computing to be greener, and how cloud computing will be more transparent to applications and design in the future.
Microsoft is pulling some quasi kamikaze tactics on VMware's VDI product, View, by offering to convert their licensing straight across for free up to 500 users. They're calling it their "Rescue from VMware VDI" http://www.citrixandmicrosoft.com/
