What is SOA? Thanks Keith...
Keith Pleas has a post discussing a "gathering" of what would appear to be some of the best minds in Enterprise Architecture. The interesting part of this is that between these luminaries they cannot come up with a definition of SOA other then SOAP without the P. So the question begs to be asked, if this group can't do it, how come so many seem to think that they have? How many times has it been said that you must use Web Services in order to do SOA.

More on Trusted Deployment
A recent post from Mike Sampson sheds even more light on permissions and ClickOnce. It would seem that Beta 2 will make this process a little easier.

ClickOnce and Trusted Application Deployment
For those that have tried to use No Touch Deployment the biggest hurdle was the security. If you install or run something from a network file share it will run with Intranet Zone settings. One of the really nice features of ClickOnce is Trusted Application Deployment (TAD). TAD uses public key cryptography to identify what is know as trust-license issuer.

Smart Client Development
There have been several posts lately about how Smart Client applications may not be such a bad thing after all. Well all I can say is welcome back to the real world ;-).

VMWare vs VirtualPC
Article on arstechnica comparing VMware and VirtualPC. Bottom line if you need to work with non Microsoft operating systems or if speed is a big concern then VMware is the best choice. If you're looking for ease of use and are using Microsoft operating systems then VirtualPC is worth looking at. This pretty much follows what I have seen. I currently use VMware even though I get VirtualPC with MSDN subscription.
