Wang: VMWare has plans for us, if he didn't we'd be dead door-nails.

Jack: Which VMWare, little ol' free VMWare viewer on-wheels or the 10,000 dollar ESX road-block?

Wang: One and the same software, Jack!

Jack: You know something you're not telling me, Wang!

Wang: Myths and legends... I don't want to insult you.

Jack: No go ahead, insult me!

Wang: It's about all sorts of scary things, about an ancient army of almost-dead servers who lived in Spirit City... and monkey sacrifices.

And the first sovereign emperor of OSS, that mad monarch, confederated our 7 warring distributions and defeated VMWare, then imposed upon him that horrible curse of no hardware, in 272 BC.

A lot of systems engineers hear these things as kids, then we grow up... and pretend not to believe them.

Jack: No horse-shit, Wang?

Wang: No horse-shit, Jack. Hell, I don't blame you. I'm a systems engineer myself and I don't even want to believe it. But it's for real... virtualization, and systems black magic!

(replace 'instaneous' with instantaneous.) You failed me Firefox spell-check! Oh who am i kidding... now everyone knows I like making up new words.

Oh great, I also left out a 'must' in front of 'be a real pain' or maybe I just left out an 'Arrrrrr' at the end of that sentence. I don't even have a Firefox grammar module (pirate edition of course) to blame...
