VMware Technology Network (VMTN) for Developers: VMware aims to be a platform for software distribution and development. As John Sequeira recognized years ago, software can be delivered better in vm's (especially open source software). "Pre-built application environments in VMware virtual machines.. [are now] available for download to any software developer. Industry-leading software vendors BEA Systems, MySQL AB, Novell, Oracle and Red Hat are among the first to distribute their software in virtual machines. Entire application environments can be pre-installed, pre-configured and "saved" within a best-practice virtual machine. Developers can eliminate many of the traditional stumbling blocks associated with testing, evaluating and deploying new software by using these pre-built applications within virtual machines."
Also announced: VMTN Subscription for a suite of most VMware products with support and upgrades priced at $299 per developer per year.
