Virtual Manhood

My last working hours yesterday were spent listening to presentations about Sun’s virtual desktop technology.  The first two hours this morning are dedicated to virtual server technology.  Being the word geek I am, I consulted dictionary.com to understand the meaning of the word “virtual”.  I found some interesting tidbits of information.  First, the source of “virtual”:

from M.L. virtualis, from L. virtus ‘excellence, potency, efficacy,’ lit. ‘manliness, manhood’ (see virtue).”

Does this mean that in today’s information technology world, only real men use virtualization?

Or only that men are really imaginary: “Existing or resulting in essence or effect though not in actual fact?”
