Quoting from the VMware official announcement:
VMware, Inc., the global leader in virtual infrastructure software for industry-standard systems, today announced that VMware Workstation 5, the fifth generation of its powerful desktop virtualization software, has received the Redmond Magazine Editors’ Choice award in the Desktop Virtualization category. This is the fourth major industry award that Workstation 5 has won since becoming generally available in April of this year. Workstation 5 has also won the eWEEK Labs Analyst’s Choice, PC Magazine Editors’ Choice and Redmond Magazine Most Valuable Product awards.
This is funny: a well-known magazine about Microsoft technologies and professionals chooses VMware Workstation instead of Microsof Virtual PC as preferred product.
This shouldn’t surprise myself that much: I still see today Microsoft official demos produced with VMware workstation 🙂
