Your full of SH!T, must be a paid troll from Intel.

I recall seeing the DEC Alpha in person running CADRA-III CAD software and it ran circles around Intel and it was 64 bit pure. 64 bit PowerPC is way better than Intel x86 as well.

Now if you were a real techie you would know the current CPU was derived from AMD with the AMDx64 architecture. AMD's early chipsets could access the RAM at 40 bits wide so you could use up to 1TB of RAM while Intel was crippled at 36 bits and 64gig of RAM( AMD also had the hyper transport bus where Intel was still pushing the clock race war and Front Side Bus with a 40 bit RAM limitation on the first version.

Sun and Apple use what they want and are niche players, you do know that HP is still trying to push the itanium. You do remember that failure... The monopoly power is the thing that allow those nut jobs to send a totally different architecture on the world of desktop PC's and servers tied to the Windows monopoly.

Now go eat a SH!T sandwich!

cheap users, like the wino that buys bottles of that lightening sh!t my dad would call the $2 bottle of liquor.

I had a lady I used to work with asked for computer advice, her son wanted a laptop. She said she bought it and it came with the latest Windows OS and she hated it. She asked if I could help her out. I asked her what exactly her son asked for, she said a Mac. I told her that if she bought a mac he would be happy and she would not be trying to get free help. I suggested she call MS or tech support and if that did not work she had 14 days to return it. In the end she just kept it and both her and her son were not happy. Some people really are ignorant and want others to spoon feed them.

You programmers have to get one clue. Write good code that runs on systems. Your system must not rely on a monopoly and should rely on standards. Your apps should run on a Mac, iPad, Android device, Linux and Windows. VB .NET means you are tied to ONE vendor and your sh!t can break with every OS, version of Office or monthly security update.

Who cares if Microsoft, Intel, Oracle, Sun, HP, Lenovo, Compaq, DEC, Amiga, ect goes out of business if you write your app to a standard. The standard since the early 90's was a web app and still is.

Besides if MS throws a lot of horsepower behind Windows on Arm will any of your VB .NET sh!t run on that? Nope...

Have fun...

As long as the local electricity is provided by a Coop you should be able to get it. You might have to get all your neighbors to sign up as well but you get a Gig fiber connection to your house( called an ONT ) and you pay for whatever bandwidth they decide to sell. Usually 10, 25, 50 and 100 megabit business service. It works really good.

You say your electricity comes from a local monopoly like Consumers Energy, well I guess you will have to wait 2 decades and they might have it, they are just a little behind and have NO incentive to provide extra services to have happy customers.

Most consumers do just that, consume data. The iPad and Android tablets make up like 99% of the market. There are apps for both platforms so why jump on the MS Win8 platform if there are NO apps? I am sure MS could have made a better way to sell win8 and the tablet interface, they are just too stuck in the rut you get into when you have monopoly power.

If GM had 70% of the car market and they wanted to start selling tires too I am sure they could FORCE the consumer to buy ONLY GM tires. How long would that last? Not sure as car buyers are not clueless like some consumers of compute devices.

Right now if you are a developer and you are not targeting the Apple and Android ecosystems you are on a dead end road. Seems like a LOT of programmers and small custom ISV's are still saying there is only one OS and it is Microsoft Windows. I am so gonna love it when this shit really hits the fan in 2014/2015.

and Citrix ICA was first a product in 1996 or so with the South Beach 1.5 beta. That later became WinFrame and was based on NT 3.51. So in 18 years how has X done what ICA has done? Can X natively do sound? I don't think so. Remote COM ports or Printer ports? We should be way beyond doing just remote graphics. Our users have tried the VMware drug and they like it, they just don't like Windows. :-)

When Citrix came out with ICA that should have been an indication where remote display tech should be headed, then we have Microsoft doing RDP and now the king pin is VMware with PCoIP. What we need is a way to remote a whole computer and not just the graphics. Why?

ALL USERS want the following:
1) Remote sound
2) Remote USB
3) Video Acceleration between a client and server

Why so that simple web pages with Flash content do not suck. And so that all this crappy USB stuff that end users have purchased can work on a remote session.

your an idiot, just start buying software...

We have Windows Server 2008 r2 and have license servers running on this VM. It bluescreens because DIGI international will not fix a 64 bit driver. So youes Windows still bluescreens and when it does and it is repeatable it takes a LONG time for these vendors to fix broken code, why prolly because they have some 14 year old boy in India doing the development because it costs less...

You know your OS is mainstream when VMware makes it so you can centrally manage the OS instance as a VDI instance in the data center where it runs right next to big iron....

That also means Microsoft Windows x64 versions are such a small percentage that VMware is not wasting any time with them either... I wish our HP thin clients could connect to a broker that served up Ubuntu instances. Some people need accelerated 3D, 2D, USB redirection, smart card authentication and local printers. Right now VMware has a monopoly on getting everything to work. Sun might be able to but you have to do Solaris and All Sun hardware from front to back.

Let me know if I am missing anything here....

Use your Swiss Army Knife...

Time to add more tools to your tool belt. Yes you are going to have to think OUTSIDE the box. Yes you are going to have to use some product other than Microsoft and you are going to have to pay the Enterprise licensing fees. They are really not that bad. VMware View with the ThinApp option.

You make think apps of your web browsers with the version of Java needed and only allow that thin app to work with that one site. You need to have AD and group policies and a license of thin app for every machine. It seems odd that VMware can sell a solution to the problem while Microsoft buries their head in the sand and works on stupid projects like the Surface Coffee Table PC....

And no you cannot use any other OS, you are still tied to Windows with VMware.

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
