The Virtual Desktop, Up Close and Personal

DescriptionLong

Gerry Feldman   This very vendor independent session will discuss the several virtualization options to PC users, whether your preference is a Windows, Mac, or Linux desktop. We'll talk about the various desktop virtualization products (free and commercial)that are available. We will also compare the use of virtualization as a viable alternative to dual booting.
A portion of the session will feature my Acer Aspire One netbook with a demo a virtual desktop running via Virtual Box. Finally, we will also look at using Virtual Network Computing (VNC), including how we are using VNC at my work to access our Linux Vms, especially as an alternative to expensive X servers, such as Exceed.

Jerry Feldman is a Software Engineer at Algorithmics, an IBM Company.  He also runs the Boston Linux and Unix User Group (one of the sponsors for this awesome event).
