I honestly think the whole vRAM fiasco was embarrassing on all levels, 
they tooted their horn about great it was, I wrote a multi-page blog 
post blasting their model and how it was more expensive for anyone that 
knew what they were doing and attempting to get higher guest:host 
ratios. I was also one of the most active community members during the 
time participating in the threadnaught they had about it.

Microsoft swoops in, takes a good chunk of customers over it, massive 
marketing material that parrots what I've basically detailed, VMWare 
retracts their bad decision.

Building their web tools on Apache Flex (Used to be Adobe Flex) is 
terrible, they have the resources to do a proper nearly full HTML5/JS 
feature-rich (I understand console access possibly needed to be done as 
some sort of a plugin, but still...), highly responsive and efficient 
client/server. Alas the largest hypervisor producer takes the easy road 
as opposed to the more sustainable one.

It'll be sad to see VMWare to continue to fall over bad decisions, I 
really prefer their hypervisor over all others right now.
