I'm not so sure that is correct. I've talked to people in the commercial 
world and learned some interesting things. A big use of vmware and citrix 
is to run windows under windows. Why? Because nobody trusts windows or 
windows users. They run citrix (and I guess vmware in other places) 4 or 5 
instances at a time under NT server and use KVMs. This one person I talked 
to ran thousands of desktops this way.

I'm guessing based on some of my conversations that the big end use of 
vmware is windows under windows. But I could be totally wrong.
