The virtualization myth | InfoWorld | Column | 2006-04-26 | By Tom Yager

Tom says "There’s a lot more to it than a bunch of developers running Windows and Linux together" and indeed there is. He paints some attractive scenarios, one of which I've wondered about myself. Namely, software/applications should be delivered as a VM and not as a bunch of install disks. I shouldn't have to be concerned about correct installations if a company has already mastered a VM with the right drivers, etc. and can deliver the product to me in this ready-to-go form. Combine this with the ease of "giving" someone a copy of my server for support purposes after deployed and there is an overwhelming case for even more virtualization.
