My views on the upcoming VI3 book (based on the samples)

This will be updated by the time I am done reading all the 110 pages on the sample chapter, a good learning experience for me since I too am working on writing my own book out there:

  • Language: Guys, you need to reword this, I wouldn't use words like "Butt" in a hardcopy.
One thing about being in IT (that no one ever mentioned when I got into it), is
that licensing, not to mention the legalities of it, is one of the biggest pain in the
butt issues I deal with all the time. Every time a vendor comes out with a
feature, you get a new price and a new license model.

I should be done in a week (I know , I know, but I am way too busy to just go through the book only). Keep watching this space!!!




  1. I also believe that their definitions of the VI3 versions are wrong. With the starter edition it comes with a license to use with VirtualCenter.

    I echo the comments about 'butt', etc. Granted this document is from some very well respected professionals in the field and they're allowed to write it any way they want. It just makes it sound a little rough around the edges.

    Hopefully the entire book will be available before VMworld.
