You wouldn't think that a video from last week's VMworld would be worth watching, but you'd be wrong! Wrong, I say!
In the end, we still don't get much of an answer that we could use for our own moms. This also reminded me that when my kids grow up and start their own careers, that they won't be able to describe teleportation, light-speed engineering, or how the replicator works to me. They'll just say, "It's magic, Dad!"
If you were given the chance, how would you explain virtualization to your mom? Let me know in the comments.
