VMware CEO Walks

VMware CEO, Diane Greene, stepped down abruptly on Tuesday, sending shares down nearly 25%. No reason was given but the company had warned revenue for the quarter ending June 30 would be below its predicted 50% growth compared with last year. It could also be partly a reaction to the commercial marketplace heating up with Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and Citrix (backed by IBM) having all built or acquired similar virtualization technologies.

On the FOSS scene, we have VirtualBox as a replacement for VMWare Fusion or Parallels.
