  • Blog Post: The last day of VMworld

    Well, today is the last day of VMworld.  I have had a great time talking to all the people here, learning what they are doing with VMware and talking about how Microsoft can help them out.  I have copious notes and thoughts that you can expect to see turning up on my blog over the next couple...
  • Blog Post: VMworld: Is it a Scalability Issue to run Drivers in the Hyper-V Parent Partition? (Answer: No)

    I am sitting in the VMworld session “TA3880 - Head-To-Head Comparison: VMware vSphere and ESX vs. Hyper-V and XenServer”. It is interesting to listen to VMware’s perspective on this. One point that they have raised – which I have heard before – is that VMware ESX has better scalability than Hyper...
  • Blog Post: VMworld Keynote – Day #2

    I have just finished watching Steve Herrod’s keynote – which I must say – I found far more enjoyable than Paul’s keynote yesterday.  I am not going to try and summarize the whole keynote – but I do want to dive in on one part. There was a section where they talked about their vision for combined...
  • Blog Post: Why Virtual PC Guy?

    The other day I wrote up the story of how I became Virtual PC Guy .  One question that I left unanswered in that post was why I chose Connectix Virtual PC over VMware Workstation.  Today I would like to elucidate on this question. Before I get going – I want to be crystal clear on some things...
  • Blog Post: Heading out to VMworld

    I have just seen my children off to their first day of school.  My bag is packed, and I am currently watching the VMworld keynote online before heading out to the airport.  I should be arriving at VMworld around 3pm this afternoon I was worried about how I would go, getting to VMworld a little...
  • Blog Post: VMworld keynote thoughts

    I have just finished watching the VMworld keynote online. Here are some of my rough thoughts: There was a moment when Paul was talking about VMware “providing a set of management products targeted to specific scenarios”. When he said this the display on the screen went from a picture of two boxes...
  • Blog Post: VMworld Update (and how to win a free Zune HD)

    Today is the first day of VMworld.  Unfortunately I will not be there until tomorrow – so today I just have to sit here impatiently and follow the event vicariously online.  In the mean time I do have a few updates: First – I now have my final session and booth duty schedule.  As well...
  • Blog Post: What’s up with all the angst / mud slinging?

    Over the last couple of months, there has been a rise in discussion between Microsoft and VMware online. While both sides certainly have many moderate bloggers who are conducting civil and constructive conversations, both sides are also guilty of getting into more heated conversation. VMware has sites...
  • Blog Post: Hyper-V versus Desktop Computing

    Some of my colleagues were talking to me about this blog entry this morning where Emmanuel is commenting on the inability to run Hyper-V on a system with high end graphics (as discussed here ). Before I talk about my thoughts / reactions here – I want to be clear: Yes, this is a short coming in Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: My VMworld Schedule

    I finally got signed up for various sessions at VMworld.  Unfortunately – I took too long, so there are some that I would like to have attended that were filled up already.  Also, I will not be at VMworld for Monday and the first part of Tuesday, as Tuesday is my daughters first day at school...
  • Blog Post: Virtual PC Guy at VMworld US 2009

    For the first time ever, I will be attending VMworld this year.  Long time readers of my blog will know that, historically, I only talk about Microsoft’s virtualization products – and not about other virtualization software.  This has been a deliberate decision on my behalf; it was arrived...
