VMware Joins the SVVP

In a letter from the CEO of VMware today it was announced that VMware is in the Server Virtualization Validation Program. I'm fairly sure they weren't on the list yesterday when I checked. This officially ends any ambiguity of whether you will be fully supported using VMware with Microsoft products.

VMware in the SVVP is a great win for them, but I don't think it dulls Microsoft's new advantage of having the only virtualization platform that is guaranteed not to have to be reproduced on physical hardware.
