    Good, environmentally sound, fiscally appropriate plan if you ask me.
    I've got more boxes than I want to hear or power, and would rather
    have one beefier box with a bashitload of memory running lots of
    vmware instances. :-)

    The ability to push virtual machines around to new hardware and such
    is very handy.
