On February 2nd, VMware announced that there are some big changes coming to a lot of their popular products.  After viewing the launch event where CEO Pat Gelsinger spoke of all the upcoming changes I was both shocked and excited.  I will go into detail later in other upcoming blog posts, but for this we will go over the announcements I am excited about.
