Microsoft is retarding the spread of virtualization with unfair, outmoded licensing practices for Windows Server 2003 and Vista operating systems, especially more sophisticated deployments that rely on VMware VMotion.

VMware further charges that these practices are not only unfair, but designed to discourage IT shops from using virtualization software that goes beyond Microsoft's own Virtual Server and Virtual PC.
