I wanted to give a huge Thank You to Idoia Uriarte for interpreting DeMystifying the Virtual Desktop in to Spanish! You can see the Spanish version here.


Desktop Virtualization Digest

I recently completed the creation of a Desktop Virtualization Digest, which allows you to see a lot of virtual desktop news and information all in one place. You can access this here.

I recently completed an EMC Perspectives paper on desktop virtualization and user productivity. This is available here.

In Second Round Peer Review

The book is out for a second round of peer review over the next two weeks. I am very excited to get these last changes back so that I can finish up the book.



Completed First Round Peer Review Edits

Received all of the first round peer reviews. Lots of good changes to make, on average about 30 per chapter. It took me more than a month to complete all of this editing, and that includes putting pictures and diagrams in to all of the chapters. I really like the pictures added to Chapter 2 which show how the technologies work. I also really like the process flows added to chapter 3 and 4. They put the links between assessment and design analysis within the context of an entire virtual desktop project.
