Virtual Machine Discrimination; Shame on you Google!

Friday, September 30, 2011

It still burns me up when I see programs discriminating against Virtual Machines.  Today’s offender, which I feel obligated to ‘out’, is Google Music.  After trying to load up the Google Music Manager in a Virtual Machine, in hopes of pouring my music library into their cloud infrastructure, I kept receiving startup failures from the manager complaining that it could not identify my computer.  A quick jump to their knowledge base and that was the end of that.

For some reason, they decided to specifically deny support for Virtual Machines.

Hey Google Music! VM discrimination is so last decade.
