Mike on MS Virtualization

Well, I have been a busy bee. Writing lots of content for RTFM big parent website – TechTarget. A couple of months back I was very fortunate to get some free training on Microsoft Hyper-V/SCVMM courtesy of Microsoft. Oh, if only Citrix could be so welcoming and helpful. Never mind. Anyway, I wrote an enormous piece (that’s an article by the way) about the experience of the course, and product. Of course it would have been very easy to be the “arse” in the classroom – and constantly interject all the time with:

“Microsoft is bad, VMware is better”

I dunno maybe the instructor and the students thought I was an arse for asking all those darn questions! But I did approach both the course and the product with positive attitude, assessing it on its merits rather than with constant unfavorable comparisons which I think is the fear some folks would have. Anyway, the whole thing got chopped up into a series of articles over on TechTarget – and you can read about my exploits there!

I hope you find it fair, balanced and honest…

Why did the VMware instructor take the Hyper-V training course?
