VMworld is just one stage and a singular opportunity, whereas the Internet offers the better medium for Microsoft to continue hammering at its cloud message to those most receptive to it. And last week's message was, if you still can't migrate fully to Windows 7, make the slow move with legacy apps (that is, anything XP-based) -- just virtualize them. The solution takes the form of the company's forthcoming P2V migration tool, released into beta testing last week. It's not for everyone though, just customers signed up through Software Assurance.
