This is NOT the end of Softricity technology or products but the end of
a company called Softricity.  If everything is approved then Softricity
becomes part of Microsoft.    


No it is not, "to get it out of the way"    Microsoft is taking the
entire company.  Not just tabling it.  This is actually a really good
thing for everyone...

virtualization server product line.


I've seen Microsoft use the "If you can't beat 'em, buy em!" mentality.
