Microsoft must support third-party virtualisation. For a virtual server to be treated the same way as physical hardware, it needs to be certified, just as Dell, IBM and HP machines are certified ...
So Apple's iPhone is coming out on Friday. The bad news is that hackers are primed and ready to start attacking the new device...at least accoridng to McAfee.
Some user may not wish to deal with the complexity of Oracle's licensing. To simplify matters, Oracle offers a site licence. Great for Oracle...not so great for CIOs and IT directors

Oracle and IBM looks like they are jumping on the virtualisation bandwagon and making a stack of money out of it
I raised the question about virtualisation in production a few daya ago because I've been researching an article for Computer Weekly about licensing following a podcast interview I conducted with ...
I received some junk mail last week from my bank. It was a letter warning me of the problems with identity theft and offering an insurance scheme for just £6.99 per month to protect me against ...
I wonder if any research has been done on how hypervisors scale in a live data centre rather than a development lab/test environment.
Virtualisation offers us a way to extend the life of old software. The hardware can be upgraded to the latest specification, allowing the legacy software to take advantage of increased performance. ...
It does seem totally unnecessary for something as open as the PC architecture to limit upgradeability
The industry relies on businesses and consumers to buy the latest hardware, software, mobile phones and gadgets. Personally, I think this model of driving innovation is not sustainable.

Today's coders simply link to a bloatware library - accessing application services over the web that may a see a computer run millions of lines of code.
A major contributor to the energy inefficiency of modern IT is our reliance on Moore's Law, which has progressively lowered the cost of computing power.
I fear, any gains in efficiency will quickly be consumed by even more power hungry peripherals.
The way the PC industry operates is simply not green. My PC is simply not compatible with Vista. Why should I throw away a perfectly good machine, simply because the new software won't run on it.
Moore's Law has been great news for consumers of IT, up to a point, but has also led to built-in obsolescence.
