Was Red Hat only supporting VMware with company engineering time? Or was Red Hat also tasking manhours to support open virtualization technology as well? Things like Xen and KVM. Did both of those open technologies benefit from Red Hat employee time? It's a matter of balance between near-term business opportunity and long-term sustainability of the open ecosystem. I've no problem supporting businesses who make a good faith effort to find the balance by both supporting proprietary tech and contributing to open tech which directly competes. Nor do I have a problem harshing business that are failing to achieve that balance.
So for the case of VDI functionality that Virtual Bridges provides in this bundle what is Canonical doing to find the balance? Which open technology project is Canonical going to help incubate which directly competes with the proprietary Virtual Bridges tech? Can Canonical make a commitment to integrating an open VDI feature target into their next desktop and server release using freenx? That would be absolutely brilliant.
