Bored watching stupid pet tricks and Borat clips on YouTube? Can’t get to Los Angeles next week for VMworld? Well, you are in luck, because we are webcasting the keynotes live Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Both days start at 8:30am and last for 90 minutes.

You must register prior to the webcast. You will be sent the session URL and instructions. When you register you should also test your system.

On Tuesday, VMware President Diane Greene gives the keynote, with two panels — one on Virtual Appliances and one on the virtualization industry. The Virtual Appliances panel will be interesting, and I guarantee that you’ll hear the phrase "changing role of the OS." The industry panel will include  Marc Andreessen (Opsware), Andy Bechtolsheim (Sun), and David Cheriton (Stanford).

On Wednesday, VMware’s other co-founder, Mendel Rosenblum, gives the keynote, and the panel is on the future of virtualization and brings the computer scientists front and center. A second segment brings out real-world examples.

You will be smarter after watching these keynotes, and it’s free, so go ahead and sign up. If you you are stuck preparing your TPS reports then, check back here at the VMTN Blog each day afterwards to find out what happened while you were busy.
