Virtual Server Beta Slated For November - Quelle Surprise!

CRM says that Virtual Server beta is slated for November and that Microsoft is prepping its Virtual Server for beta-testing in mid Nov. Hooray - the beta is long overdue. The customer preview release in May was OK, but was clearly lacking in many areas. Since then, beta testers have seen no new builds, and no significant details on product direction. One thing seems clear: Microsoft's VM products may support Linux (etc) - but don't count on it. For those trying to server consolidate, this seems a shame, although both understandable and a market opportunity for VMware.
