Gartner's Grasp of the Blindingly Obvious

So, Gartner says that virtualization sales will continue to increase.

Um, this is news how?

"Virtualization helps organizations to cut costs, better utilize assets, and reduce implementation and management time and complexity, all of which are crucial in this economic environment," says a Gartner research director. Wow. What bold, fresh analysis. I'm glad Gartner's around to enlighten us.

Here's more stunning insight: Gartner expects server virtualization to continue to be the point of entry, and hosted desktop (VDI) to make bigger inroads. Man, knock me over with a feather.

Does Gartner really have nothing better to do than release "duh" papers? Well, at least some folks at Gartner are doing interesting research.
