I Know Virtualization and, WTS, you are not it

I found this thoroughly ridiculous statement, made by Microsoft, in their announcement of the Calista acquistion. Buried in the middle of page on Calista's site is the statement:  

Microsoft has been a leader in the presentation virtualization space for more than ten years with Windows Terminal Services. With the addition of Calista, Microsoft is striving to provide the best, broadest and most affordable virtualization technology portfolio for customers and partners.

Everyone is all too familiar with makeovers during this primary election political season. But Microsoft, this one is a bit obvious. Just by calling it a fancy name like"presentation" virtualization doesn't make you an early player in the virtualization space.

As they say out west where I live, "This ain't my first rodeo, cowboy."

Nice history makeover, Microsoft.
