Virtualization: Some Don't Care For It

Up until now, I thought that virtualization was a sans cerebellum, but it appears some think otherwise. According to a recent survey, about 1 in 10 companies think it's too expensive to implement, or they don't have the money (there is a difference.) One guy thinks Solaris in the answer...

And for some strange reason, it appears the Europeans are none too interested either. I'm not sure why this is; perhaps it is because there are more vendors in the European space, and companies are waiting for a clear victor to emerge. There's definitely a big battle going on between everyone and you-know-who.

There's no telling how this is effecting the server market either; some say server sales are going down, others up, and there are a few other players on the sidelines such as PG&E that are supporting the technology through rebates, etc. Still seems pretty cut and dried for me; after the smoke clears, I think we will the technology implemented in most organizations.
