VMWorld 2008: Microsoft and Poker Chips Saga

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

You might have not heard about this – but at VMworld 2008 Microsoft stand they were handing $1 poker chips apparently. Also on the card was a url to the affect that vmware costs to much .com…


There were some unsubstantiated rumours that they were asked to leave. But there is no evidence to back up that. Still rather juvenile behaviour at best. Plus the association of poker chips with a major software vendor in this day-and-age seems a little cack-handed. Would you gamble your virtualization with HyperV?

You can read more about this viral-hype-marketing on the Microsoft Blog…


The guys at the Burton Group have another take on this altogether…
