Major beef with VMWARE

Anybody who knows me knows that I am pretty much a VMWare bigot. Well, here is a major beef I have with VMWare: VMWare uses a version of Linux for their service console - well, why then do they not supply VI clients for Linux? And not only that, but looks like they are only going to provide Windows based development in the future. Now they have Linux Workstation, and Converter for Linux, so it does not make sense not to provide VI Client for Linux. Real dumb I think since a lot of VMWARE users are Linux/Unix people.

So from my Linux Install, I have to run VMWARE Workstation for Linux with an XP Virtual Machine, so I can run VI Client to manage my ESXi server!

Dumb, dumb, dumb. Oh, yeah, dumb.
