Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Reader survey We have received some stick about our latest reader survey that's running over here. The environmental sceptics among you think some of questions are a bit assumptive, and that by simply answering them it could be construed that you take the green argument seriously - a bit like trying to answer yes or no to the question "Have you stopped beating your wife?" without incriminating yourself.

We don't think we have strayed too far towards that extreme, but to make sure we really have captured all viewpoints accurately on the fundamental question of whether the green argument is real or hype, we've put together the 90 second mini-poll below.

So, whether you're a sceptic, an activist, or just someone working their way through the arguments, it would be great if you could spare us a few mouse clicks.
