VMware announces virtual appliance challenge

VMware is announcing their $200.000 Ultimate Virtual Appliance Challenge. Anyone can submit a self-built virtual appliance and get the chance to win up to $100.000 as the first price. VMware defines a virtual appliance as:

All submitted virtual appliances will be rated by a panel of industry experts and by community votes. It will be interesting to see what people come up with.
