Virtual reality puts paid to total failure

It is now five years since we were hostage to a physical PC, thanks to VMware desktop virtual computing. Of course there is hardware on our desk but it's little more than a shell hosting the virtual PC that does the real work. That's why we ran, not walked, to grab a pre-release copy of VMware Workstation 7.
Traditional physical computing, frankly, stinks. The operating system and applications perch precariously on hardware that fails infrequently but catastrophically.
