Interesting comment for this particular list. While I'm all in favor
of MS "seeing the light," so to speak, your comment on "... everything
else as a VM guest on top of a device-independent layer. At least I
hope we are going there." With everything so performance oriented in
our world, I just find this comment surprising.
