I Never Knew Virtualization Was This Hot

As editorial director of Virtualization Review (yeah, in this company we all have more than one job) I get a lot of press releases about virtualization.

There's server, PC, desktop, application, storage, I/O and network virtualization -- to name just six.

Now there is a new category: virtual strippers that adorn your desktop. That's right, Virtual Girl Desktop promises to spice up your computing life with Jewell, Arianna or 378 other ladies who live on your toolbar and will remind you of appointments and show up when you get bored.

First, there is not a single HR department (maybe with the exception of the Howard Stern show) who would think this is acceptable in the workplace.

Second, while the company claims the software is "certified 100 percent clean," there's no way I'm going to vouch for that. As a result, I won't be providing the site's URL.
