I wrote about Vista – since then I have had a flood of emails – I’ll try and answer them here:
Firstly – VMware Workstation 6 is in beta.
My friends at VMware let me know about that and got me on the beta. So far it’s looking great with Vista as a host – and there are slew of new features.
Secondly – many people asked ‘is it worth the switch from XP?’
Difficult question. If you have a burning need for x86_64 support, or if you have pretty good hardware and a good end-user training program – then a qualified ‘maybe’.
Thirdly – I’ve been asked about ZENworks and the Novell Client.
Good news. The next version of ZENworks will be in beta in January – that will support Vista.
The second piece of news – and I have the scoop here – is that Jason Williams let me know that the Vista Client will be available as a technology preview in January with release in mid-2007.
I’ll be working on some ZENworks Pulsar posts over the break – so see you then.
Happy Christmas and here’s looking forward to a great 2007.
