OK. I admit it the ONLY reason for this blogpost title is get you to pay attention. I don’t really mean that at all. But now I’ve suckered you into reading this thing let me explain. I’ve written an article for TechTarget which is all about my take on VMware’s recent alliance with Novell. In case you don’t know – the top-level on this is that VMware has decide to standardize (now there’s a good idea) all its virtual appliances on Novel’s SUSE Linux. I think this a good step, as any standardization is a good thing in my book. It does raise the thorny question of where this leaves us with the whole JEOS concept – and that’s one of themes of my missive.
