As the open source players have been "jockeying for position," VMware's network of providers that offer public cloud compatibility with on-premise VMware-powered infrastructure has surpassed 100 vendors, it announced. The blogpost plays on a theme of a fairy tale, equating the open source providers as "the ugly sisters.""

Just keep their hands off of VirtualBox.

On the personal level I stopped using VMWare 5 years ago. VMWare might be good in some business situations on monster boxen, but on a stand alone desktop or even small/mid server VMWare is overkill bloat when VitualBox does really good at this.
