Next week, September 15-18, brings us the biggest Virtualization event in North America and your Linux guy will be there with bells on. I'll be there in my new freelance reporter capacity as Linux Magazine's Virtualization Columnist/Editor.

You can expect blog posts and possibly some breaking news from the conference as I receive it. I'm anticipating at least one major announcement from this conference concerning company mergers, partnerships, or buyouts. You may remember my prediction from August 22nd where I said something may be afoot with Microsoft and Novell. I'm not saying it's going to happen but if it does, you heard it here first. You may also hear some announcements from the Sun and Microsoft camps as well so stay tuned and keep your browser pointed to DaniWeb for the latest.

Desktop virtualization, green computing, and cloud computing are all hot topics for this year's conference. Of those, I suspect that desktop virtualization is going to garner the most attention from attendees and exhibitors.

Watch for my Monday posting about a hot new product for you high-end cell phone gadget freaks. This little gem is worth watching out for but I can't give you the scoop before the company makes its product announcement on Monday. Trust me, you'll be impressed.

If you're going to be at VMWorld, try to find me. I'd love to meet as many of you as possible. See you there!

Congratulations on the new gig and I look forward to your reports, especially the cell phone announcement. I happen to be in the market for one and have been a holding pattern trying to figure out which direction to take. Maybe this will help me.
