EMC VMware Needs a Mainframe

Somebody stole VMware's source code — the company's most valuable (really only) trade secret — and it showed up on the Internet. I guess that's one way to open source your product.

Oh, the irony!

For the record, I think VMware is a reasonably good product for what it does — although there are plenty of fine X86 virtualization solutions, like KVM — but mainframes are different and special. It's the combination of hardware and software, focused by design on the same goals and outcomes, that matters. (See also: Apple.)
