Typical corporate talking head blah. Interesting that he talks about
Vmotion as a 'killer technology' when Xen is already doing it. 
If you read the interview there's quite a bit of Xen-bashing. The guy
rags on the requirement for modification of the host kernel. He is
comparing the two products as if they took the same approach, failing to
mention that Xen's paravirtualisation architecture eliminates all of the
costly performance overhead his company's product is famous for...

This is an interesting interview with a VMware executive about Xen.  One
of his statements is that Xen is "purely for Linux."
