Well there has been rumor of it, but now it’s really true.
The announcement by Microsoft that Virtual Server 2005 R2 is available as a FREE DOWNLOAD.
Plus, virtual machine add-ins for Linux
You can download it now.
Lets start playing!
A few people have been trying to get this off the ground for some time.
Thanks to the work of Derrick Buckley the SWIUG is holding it’s first meeting on April 11th 2006
The venue will be the Healey Room, Ground Floor 50 Bridge St, Sydney (thats the AMP Center)
Topic this month is Windows Server 2003 R2 & What is coming in Longhorn Server
So if your in Sydney, see you there.
I was reading about the 5 different versions
of Vista earlier.
Lets forget MCE, Tablet and x64 for the moment.
What struck me was the difficulties that supporting 5 different versions would produce.
As you would expect, being a Shell/User MVP
, I answer questions about issues people have with XP.
The problem is, I don’t always know what version they have, they don’t tell you in the initial post.
I have found myself typing long replies only to realise, it may be wrong, they might be using XP Home not XP Pro.
Vista with 5 versions will only exacerbate this. It’s going to be real fun trying to remember the features of each version and worse still, differing implementations of the same feature in a particular version.
