VMware Workstation named Best Software Development Product

Quoting from the VMware official announcement:

VMware, Inc., the global leader in software for industry-standard virtualized desktops and servers, today announced that VMware Workstation has won the 2007 Visual Studio Magazine Readers’ Choice Award in the Development Tools category. Winners were announced in the June 2007 issue of Visual Studio Magazine…

VMware continues to achieve endless awards on its products. This isn’t a real news. What is interesting instead, is VMware continues to collect awards from Microsoft development community.

In this years Microsoft put huge efforts and investments in development tools, and became a recognized leader not only because of programming languages but also because of developments tools.

Virtualization plaftorms are today the most needful tool for any developer on the planet, and Microsoft had the opportunity to take the virtualization market this way since Connectix acquisition in 2003. But never did, allowing competitors to succeed in its own reign.
