That reminds me the huge differences between ESX2.x and ESX3.x.  While ESX2.x was an interesting product such is (was) Hyper-V, ESX3.x was just superb… Hyper-V R2 is taking the same path.

But there is a huge difference here. It took 3 years to VMware to come out with ESX3.x then another 3 years to ESX4.0 whilst it took 18 months to Microsoft to come out with Hyper-V R2.

At that speed, Microsoft will come up with its 3rd generation of Hyper-V in 18-20 months while VMware will be still developing an ESX5

Watch out VMware!!!
