on Vmware's part - not because am long but that's reality of it.
Google had almost 61% of Global search queries in August and that's considered mrkt dominance. Vmware is at 90%!!!!!
When competition starts getting mrkt share out of Vmw then we can talk about competition being alive and well. However, currently - that's non-existent and it will remain that way for the next 2 yrs at least. After that perhaps, political and economical influences will convince vmware to yield some space to others, but not before that. Even then the majority of market share ownership will remain decisively on Vmware's hands imho.
