Default Virtualisation: just a lot of extra software licences?

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/11...tion_licences/

Quote:
A colleague of mine recently remarked that x86 virtualisation makes no sense to any organisation that is cost conscious.

I am an early adopter of virtualisation and wanted to know what he meant.

“When using virtualisation, you are paying for far more software licences than you would if you were to take the time to implement everything on one physical box," he explained.
