I told you so. I told you back in late June VMware was about to get its block knocked-off by the one-two of open-source virtualization and virtualization being baked into operating systems. On July 8th, VMware’s rump hit the canvas.
That was the day Diane Greene, CEO and co-founder was fired and replaced by former Microsoft. executive Paul Maritz. Officially, VMware’s board gave the usual executive song-and-dance about needing to “bring in new leadership with the experience and operational breadth to capitalize on the opportunities in front of VMware as it scales up from its current place to a billion-dollar software company.”
Scale up!? Please!
