Link: Preview: VMware Workstation 6.5 beta surges ahead | InfoWorld | Review | 2008-04-10 | By Randall C. Kennedy.

They say market leadership has its privileges.
When you’re way out in front and the competition is just a distant blip
in your rearview horizon, you get to take a breather. Coast a bit.
Maybe focus on the big picture for a while. Yes, it’s good to be the
leader. All of which begs the question: What the hell is wrong with

These guys are so
far out in front that the competition has to dial 011 just to get them
on the phone. This is especially true in the traditional desktop
virtualization space. VMware has almost zero competition on the
dominant platform, meaning Windows. Yet it continues to innovate – and
at an alarming pace, no less.


in point: VMware Workstation 6.5. Though only just entering beta,
Workstation 6.5 is already causing a stir among the virtualization
faithful. That’s because the feature set reads like a veritable wish
list to Virtual Santa from all the good girls and boys down in the
in-house development and help desk departments.

I have nothing to add to that.
