VMware survives GPL breach case, but plaintiff promises appeal

I'm guessing the answer is why they use vmklinux at all: DRIVERS! They know that a lot of companies produce Linux drivers, but very few produce drivers for other OSs (except for Windows, of course).

So using Linux was an "easy win" for VMware.
