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

We feel that Virtualization will become a core part of IT, like TCP/IP was 10 years ago. We’ve made it part of the Operating System but we’ve also made it available in a free standalone version, so that even users who do not buy Windows can use it. We did the same thing with Virtual Server before.
