Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Cybernewsreader Ananova uttered her first words today in what can only be described as the most over-hyped, anti-climatic waste of computational power since the flotation of lastminute.com. "Hello world, here is the news," is hardly the stuff of legends, as the PR junkies hoped it might be. Nor is the fact that it took so long to download, the morning bulletin almost ended up as the lunchtime news. Even BT's superfast broadband ADSL service hooked up to the the latest geewhiz machine from Hewlett-Packard failed to connect wth this cyberanchorwoman, who one reader descibed as the love child ofMax Headroom and Lara Croft. Like Tamagochi, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and deely-boppers, this is one gimmick that should an extremely short shelf life. If you don't believe us, check it out yourself. Don't say you haven't been warned. ® Related Stories News Avatar speaks! (But what will be Ananova's first words?)
