Microsoft uses IBM AS400's for development.

Not well known but Microsoft uses IBM AS400 machines with the Windows
server card option to develop programs. This option is really a PC on
a card but offers significant advantages over a stand alone pc in that
it can support virtual sessions of Windows each of which can be
rebooted as required without bringing down the other seesions or worse
the rest of the machine. Microsoft is a huge IBM AS400 customer. Most
people assume developers are using PC's sitting next to their work
space.

MS developers are using Win 2k3 and Win 2k8 servers as development 
machines too and not PC(s), with VMware.

They could do this easier and cheaper using VMWare.

Not on a AS400 directly. Vmware needs a machine directly supporting the 
x86 instruction set. Vmware is not a CPU emulator

So they did this 10+ years ago. Any evidence from this century?

No kidding - since VMWare doesn't run on the AS400. Obviously it infers that 
they could run VMware directly on commodity PC hardware instead of 
virtualization on the AS400.

You know old boy, you really are stupid, and you blow lip babble smoke 
just to be doing it. You know damn good and well what VMware is for, 
which does not run on an AS400.
