Photos: A week at VMWorld 2008
A roundup of the news and some photos from VMware's annual conference in Las Vegas this week.
Over the past week, 14,000 virtualisation customers and partners gathered in Las Vegas for VMworld 2008 - the annual conference from VMware.

That company has had a turbulent year, and new chief executive Paul Maritz has looked to set his firm on a new path, detailing a vision to take all desktops virtual and bring cloud computing to the enterprise.
Aside from the more blue-sky views Maritz laid out, VMware released Microsoft product Fusion 2, and shared some announcements with partners, including Intel's latest chips and a new switch from Cisco.
VMworld is also about the customers, and property giant CB Richard Ellis showed how it has used virtualised desktop technology to save as much as a million dollars a year. Not too shabby.
As the firm's shares slid this week, however, it remained to be see whether Martiz's performance - or that of VMware - would be celebrated or slammed.
