Microsoft wins?

So Yahoo shares fall drastically, they lay off staff and I imagine face loosing the litigation regarding shareholder value by not taking the money and running, which leaves spot 2 (behind Google) available for the taking.

Virtual machine without the OS

If you take away the guest OS from being in the middle between ESX and the application, aren't you back to where you started i.e. an OS and an App?

Of course, you'll have to have the word virtual in front of everything so people will still think it is a good idea.
