First, knowing that more than 60% of the high tech companies & schools in the States use Vmware APPs for virtualization, I would like to know if Microsoft is working on the compatibility between their own Virtual PC APPs & Vmware, or with others like Citrix to illustrate? This question is from the 5/14 Microsoft Virtualization Chat on ITKnowledgeExchange.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Microsoft, Citrix, and other companies are standardizing on the VHD format for VMs and there is compatiblity in that. VMware currently uses the VMDK format for VMs. There are many tools to convert the formats back and forth.
