Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc. October 2007 Entries
"the industry's most powerful thin computer"?? certainly the most powerful Thin Notebook
So Wyse have recently announced the G90, and although some might argue that a 1Ghz AMD would trump a 1.2Ghz Via, what I find somewhat surprising is that the Mobile Thin Client's they have on display for use here at the iForum are very neat and tidy 12.1" wide screens with a tiny footprint - and these are also using the 1.2Ghz processor. The reason why I discovered this was not because I was reading the specs sheet, but more because I thought it was so warm to the touch, I would imagine that this ......

Oracle refuses to accept the idea of Virtual Servers?
It would appear that Martin is getting a hard time from the Oracle regarding the Licensing element. Is this just me, or does this seem like Oracle is sticking their head in the sand? I find it incredibly hard to understand that in the latter part of 2007 Oracle finds it difficult to accept or accommodate the concept of Virtualization. Oracle licensing: not OK We have received word on our Oracle licensing problem. Unfortunately the word from Oracle HQ in The States was not good. They still will not ......

MS Beta Solution Accelerators for Softgrid and Viridian
I'm afraid I haven't had time to actually download the docs and read them through as there are other things I need to get done before heading over to Vegas for Citrix's Application Delivery Expo next week. But it would appear that the Guide for Softgrid has come at a very opportune time as I've been contacted a couple of times now in the last few weeks by recruiters looking for people here in Australia with experience in Softgrid, in fact a few weeks ago I was contacted by a recruiting firm in Hong ......

Change of location
Hi All, I have been posting both at this site as well as at my new blogging home of for a few weeks now, and although I still have some tweaking to do on the graphics side of things, it's time to open the doors for all. I will probably still drop the odd post this way, but essentially all is now going to the new site. So the home page is at and if you are after the feed then you can find it at See you there? ;-) ......

Pricing for ESX Server 3i (stand alone) to be less than $500?
So Allessandro is certainly well connected in the Virtualization space and as XenSource will be clearly getting some serious airtime in just over 2 weeks time at the newly re-badged iForum (oops, Application Delivery Expo) hosted by Citrix then I'm sure that VMware will be trying to make sure that it has some choice announcements just before and even during the last week of October. Note to self - must be less cynical ;-) For those who will be attending iForum 2007 in Las Vegas, please drop me a ......

Neoware e900 Thin Client Not Appropriate for Elementary School Students
As you may or may not know Neoware has a Thin Client called the e900 that is very rugged in an alloy housing that is capable of withstanding shock, water, dust etc. - BUT one thing it's not, is portable, unless of course you are someone like WalMart with a large distribution chain and mount these on your forklift trucks? Still, as you are about to see, they are definitely not suitable for kids? ;-) ......
