Not sure if the magnitude of my latest Windows 7 Virtual Machine (VM) will be apparent to everyone, but I now have a fully “integrated” application lifecycle management (ALM) environment, with version control, work item tracking, automated build support and lots more running on my laptop in a VM.
- I am running a client operating system
- I have limited RAM … I could give more, but am testing the limits :)
- I only have SQL Express
- Yet I am running Team Foundation Server (TFS) Basic 2010 in the VM, on the client OS, with little RAM and only SQL Express as the database.
- Oh yes, the background image is also cool :)
See Brian’s blog TFS 2010 for SourceSafe Users for the background information or watch Zayd’s blog for more news on this exciting product.
