One Virtual Machine Format To Rule Them All


Some Tech Industry leaders form a new group to try and hammer out a universal and open file format for Virtual Machines.

Virtual machines are great! Personally, I’ve been running Windows XP Professional under VMware Server in my Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 box (at home and here at work) for the past couple of months and I absolutely love it. Yeah, there is a bit of performance lag, and I can’t run any games (under VMware Server, but VMware Player should allow), but virtual machines are the best way to tinker and toy with almost any OS in a safe sand-boxed environment.

But it has become apparent that a number of virtual machine formats don’t play together all that well. That issue of interoperability is a big one as the once defacto OS choice of Windows is loosing steam against Apple OSX and numerous Linux Distros. So in a bid to help expand and consolidate the Virtual Machine market place, three of the biggest players in that game have joined forces to develop one unified format for Virtual Machine software.
