It's an interesting post.  A few things struck me, though:

First of all, you mention only one virtualization package when there are a 
few, some of which are Free Softawre.  At least linking to a list with 
more would be nice.

Secondly, I was hoping that by "sustainable IT" you meant something more 
interesting - the idea that, for example, open source software development 
is more sustainable than proprietary software development in some way 
other than the obvious power-efficiency sense.

Still - making server rooms more power-efficient is a good thing.  Good
