There IS a secret Vi4 Beta Program

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

A source close to RTFM. We will call him “Deep Throat” for the purpose of this blog. [Incidentally, that's a Tricky-Dick Nixon reference, not a reference to any porn you might own] Tells me there is a secret Vi4 Beta Program. NOW, the big question is how does someone has unimportant,...

Blogs that Blog about Blogs, that Blog about Blogs

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Well, there’s fancy term for blogs about blogs. It’s aggregation. That’s where a blog wraps up in one bit size blog other bloggers content. It’s well know practise, and VMTN on VMWare.com is a good place to add to your RSS Feeder if you just want to keep an eye on the bloggersphere from one...

VMware Shake-Up causes Blog Rumour Mill to go into Overdrive

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

There’s been a lot of changes going on in VMware recently – what with the departure of Dianne Green and the fact that ESX3i has been made freely available. Along with VMware’s faultering share price. That said have you seen the rest of the stock market recently? I’m waiting for the letter...
