Desktop Virtualziation market to be worth $ 1.8 Bn by 2012

Hmm, not a really promising figure that. So it is safe to assume that the desktop virtualization is a hype and will/can eventually cost you more dollars than the current setup.

Think about it: The chips are getting energy efficient and fast, the disks are getting cooler and cheaper. And to play the devil's advocate here, then you have a consultant who's blowing hose in your ears telling you that your desktop is really better off being hosted on some distant, remote, out-sourced server? (Do bear with me as I am exaggerating here)

But that "conservative figure" of $1.8Bn is not really excitable, far from it. I've heard numbers , back in 2007, to be in the range of $ 1.5 Bn as well.
