Enabling sound over RDP with a Windows Server 2003 virtual machine
Virtual Server does not provide sound support out of the box - and in the past I have commented that it is possible to get sound out of a virtual machine if you connect to it via RDP and enable sound remoting under the advanced options of the Remote Desktop client.

Altiris gets Wise to virtualisation
Altiris has added application virtualisation to its Wise software packager, in a move that the company claimed could save corporate users both time and money when repackaging applications for internal distribution. The Altiris SVS virtualisation technology installs and runs each application on its own software layer which sits on top of Windows, and does not install anything to Windows itself. This should prevent applications from conflicting with each other and with Windows, the company said. With ......

VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) - (sounds like a thin client solution to me)
With VMware Virtual Desktop infrastructure (VDI), you can host individual desktops inside virtual machines that are running in their data center. Users access these desktops remotely from a PC or a thin client using a remote display protocol. Since applications are managed centrally at the corporate data center, organizations gain better control over their desktops. Installations, upgrades, patches and backups can be done with more confidence without user intervention. End-User Offsite Desktops A ......

VMWare eats Microsoft's lunch again, steals toys, cuts in line
It's always a hard thing for me not to naturally root for the smaller guy.

In a market that Microsoft is trying to invade by a continued replay of standard tactics (acquisition, development, forced entry by giving away product for free), VMWare continues to dominate.

But I didn't allow for the email telling me about the upgrade to the Unified Messaging server (and the associated downtime) on the day before the roadshow did I? So I sent a mail to the ......
