Ballmer on Virtualization

Interesting quote from Steve Ballmer on virtualization that he gave during his September 25 Churchill Club speech:

“If you want virtualization on 80 percent of servers instead of 5 percent of servers, you better not charge three times as much as the price of the server for the virtualization,” Ballmer said. “For certain high-end applications, the approach that VMware has used is a perfectly good approach, but it’s not an approach that is going to lead to virtualization of a high percentage of servers.”
