And, if you ever want a good chuckle, go to slashdot.org and search for the first post where VMWare announced virtualization.
It’s full of wizened old geezers pointing out the various reasons it would never catch on, couldn’t work, or was otherwise useless. It includes such gems as, “I’ll just reboot to use Win95 if I need it!”
They were, all but a few people, so unaware of the benefits and felt that it was impossible to achieve. Many thought it was just hype for a product that would never reach the market.
Man, am I glad I didn’t post in that thread. That way I don’t have to eat crow! I probably would have been one of the “I’ll believe it when I see it” people. A couple of decades later and virtualization is all over the place.
