VMWare joins Linux Foundation alongside Adobe, others!

As reported in the Washington Post,

"Virtualization giant VMware has joined the Linux Foundation, lining up alongside existing members like Adobe, Google and IBM, the organization announced Wednesday.

Virtualization, the ability to run software in virtualized containers so multiple OSes or versions can run on one physical machine, is becoming more prevalent in IT environments. At its core, virtualization is enabled by software called a hypervisor, and can help drive down data-center costs, among other benefits."

To me, this is an awesome development. I am about to add Debian to my VMWare list and am glad to see they are seeing the light. For those of you who have not tried Linux lately, it has come a long way. Awesome day today!!
