2011. Microsoft Hyper-V vs VMware: video
Recently, Microsoft marketing people use to create funny videos about the competitors. Recently the movie about GMail appeared and now - about the Microsoft's main competitor on the virtualization market - VMWare. The video shows Tad, the salesman at VMLimited, the company that stuck in the IT past. He goes to business meetings with clients in his cool minivan and tries to sell them his "limited" virtualization system (when the normal companies are already selling private clouds). That's the modern IT-humor: "While he says that he selling a cloud, he is actually selling nothing more than virtualization" - probably if Larry Ellison would hear it, his hair would stand on end.
