Recently, VMware launched a campaign and webpage called “Get the Facts – not the Microsoft Hyper-bole”.  On this page, VMware lists five “facts” why VMware is better than Microsoft.  I have wanted to respond to this myself, but being a Microsoft employee, makes it a bit more difficult and of course is biased (even though I am VCP5 certified).  Luckily for me, on July 5th, Mitch Garvis posted his opinion in a blog post.  Whether you agree with all his statements or not, it is indeed a good read and the key to remember is that you really need to do the math and the testing yourself.  In about a month, Windows Server 2012 will become the “Current” version of Windows and Hyper-V and that is where one really needs to do comparative testing.
