We wrote some days ago about Microsoft’s “Slog” against VMware. This campaign continues and reaches new heights under a new domain which Microsoft now operates. It’s www.vmwarecostswaytoomuch.com (VMware Costs Too Much). Is this how a publicly-traded company should behave?

Not long ago, I was talking with a friend of mine who works at VMware, the Palo Alto, Calif.-based irtualization software giant.
