Yeah... I'm sure we could get a good presentation on what they call
"virtual infrastructure," which is the enterprise virtualization + virtual

It's got some cool features that Xen, et al. don't have, or have really
crappy implementations of.

Having said that, I agree with Ian: we need to focus on open source stuff,
and make sure we're getting solid, non-marketing presentations. 

(And no Ian, I don't take it personally. :-)

Speaking of presentation(s|schedules) I need to respond to Bill Kendrick's
question about whether or not we want to do a "members" night so he can
juggle the speaker schedule.

If so, I'm thinking December would be good.
