    Microsoft directly responsible.

    I'd love to hear you explain how you came to this conclusion?
    There is not 1 big firm on earth running MSFT's product or lack there of in place of VMW's.
    CTXS has a few.

    • Citrix (CTXS) is different than VMWare. A Citrix console MAY LOOK like a VMWare virtual server but it is not. Citrix is terminal services which is very different in construction, concept, and application. Citrix serves a different function in an enterprise environment than VMWare. Not the same.

      • Um FA7, Citrix owns XenSource the only other true hypervisor on the market. It is exactly the same thing that VMW sells. It just isn't as mature.
        SWSoft has a product as well. So does Virtual Iron.
        MSFT is supposed to be coming out with one this year as part of Windows 2008, but it won't be here for a while.
        Citrix also has Presentation Server as you have mentioned.
        Couple Presentation Server with XenServer and then add their WAN and LAN optimization tools and CTXS has a pretty mean offering. Granted VMW is more mature in the Server Virtualization Offering. However, CTXS is Application Virtualization with the ability to virtualize everything from the server on up.
