One topic that I have not been able to blog about from VMworld was the VMware View announcements. I didn’t get a lot of detail, but the introduction during the keynotes did peak my interest quite a bit. My company is currently evaluating its options for doing virtualized desktops. We feel like there are some places where we can benefit from virtual desktops and others where maybe thin clients may be better. Our (possibly misguided) goal is to mitigate the amount of licensing fees we are paying to Microsoft. So at the same time, we are looking at Linux on the desktop as well.
