Virtualization : Vista's reputation already damaged?



The fact that organizations may totally refuse to upgrade to Vista because its standing in the way of their Server and Desktop Virtualization strategies.

Microsoft says the blockade is necessary for security reasons. But that is disputed. The circumstances might simply reflect a business decision Microsoft doesn't want to explain.


This is beginning to smell real bad. I mean all the Vista bashing at Slashdot and the user community. Companies screaming to the whole EU to ban Vista!

Don't worry before Longhorn will be launched there will be three great things playing in the Virtualization arena:
  • Grid Virtualization
  • Desktop Virtualization (Slice and dice the desktops, with already shipping Dual Core and soon Quad core on desktops, you will have a massive desktop consolidation taking place)
  • Application Virtualization (or Application Streaming as some like to call it)


Time isn't ripe, we're running late. And a lot of people will move to either Mac or Linux (Ubuntu) as these moves are preventing users to upgrade to Vista.

Whatever you say the Vista is taking up a lot of heat.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
