Quest for VDI

I do respect Brian. And a lot. For sure he was the guy that brought the whole TS community at the time together (Ron Oglesby, Shawn Bass, Tim Mangan, Jeff Pitsch, Benny Tritsch, myself and several others) and kept it like that. BriForum, the child of endless discussions among everyone mentioned above is now a well known conference and a great place for everyone looking for SBC/TS/Citrix/VDI/Virtualization info.

If you read his website he is always saying something (well at least lately) about VDI. Even the discussions we have with Microsoft and their RDS team (sorry, most stuff under NDA otherwise I would post about these here) are now moving towards VDI. For God’s sake, even the lady that comes to clean my house every once in a while is now talking about VDI. So in a way, it is becoming mainstream. Wait. I do not mean people are actually using it. I mean it is mainstream in terms of discussing it, talking about it. Not implementing it.

Problem is even on these discussions with all the other Microsoft MVPs (I think all mentioned above are part of this group) I am not sure exactly what every single one of them think about it. So today when thinking about it I decided it would be a good idea to talk to every single one of them, one-to-one talk, record all that and then publish every day/week these conversations here on our blog. Once I have all the recordings I will then create some sort of final analysis, based on what all these guys said, resuming all that, and publish it here.

The reason for that is in a way I want to know what all these big shots in the industry think and see if they actually agree on something. 🙂

Secondly, I want to stop talking about VDI for at least six months. Why six months? Well that will bring us to 2010, the year when according to Brian, VDI replaces the whole world and we throw everything we know/have out of the window.

And the most important reason: that will give me a six months break discussing VDI with the cleaning lady.
