Its inevitable

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 5:12 pm

“Virtualization does not make sense to non-business customers”, said Microsoft when it decided Windows Home (and Home Premium edition) cannot be run as virtual machine. From day one, it is nonsense, David Berlind’s post on ZDNet,  clearly shows the benefit of virtualization to joe users.

I always maintained that this restriction has nothing to do with benefit to users, but a business decision to maximize revenue. Why sell a cheaper one if you can get the market to bear a more expensive option? I know it is only a matter of time Microsoft will capitulate. And capitulate it did. It finally announce that it is going to be possible to use Windows Home edition on virtual machine.
