Support your local VMUG!

vmware-logoVMware sponsors local VMware User Groups worldwide.   I recently attended a meeting of the Santa Barbara VMware Users Group and had a great time!  The topic was VMware View, their flagship desktop virtualization solution.  VMware sent one of their Systems Engineers to do a step by step hands on demonstration of installing VMware View.  After a (free!) pizza lunch, Wyse demonstrated using their thin clients with View.  The coolest Wyse thin clients I saw were the ones made by Teradici that did native PC over IP (PCoIP) in hardware, like the Wyse P20.

Having installed both VMware View, as well as Citrix XenDesktop, I can honestly say both products have their relative strengths and weaknesses but that View has a far easier install process.
