Vmware's claim

 

Mendel Rosenblum, chief scientist and co-founder of virtualization vendor Vmware claims that operating systems are doomed.

In a keynote to the LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco Rosenblum said that virtualization will eventually make today's complex operating systems obsolete.

Rosenblum said the better architecture is to build software for a virtualization appliance. Software makers could package within a virtual machine only those components needed to run a particular application.
