VMware not even mentioned at Linux Symposium keynote

Despite company efforts in reaching a standardization in hypervisors and its presence at the conference, VMware has not even been mentioned at Ottawa Linux Symposium keynote, presented by Jonathan Corbet, co-founder of Linux Weekly News.

Colbert talked touched several topics including virtualization, referring to Xen and User Mode Linux (UML) as the big players in his slides, and mentioning Linux-VServer, OpenVZ and BSD Jail as other efforts.
VMware fallen in the various proprietary offerings entry.

It’s a bad result considering last week VMware attack against controverse Microsoft-XenSource agreement.
