I use VMware View at work and all my work bookmarks and internal tools are in it. Yes I am using a fat laptop at work and a desktop at home but wherever I go I can use that work environment exactly as I left it and pickup exactly where I left off where as before I had a pre built VM at home for all my tools and it had to constantly be updated to keep up. This has made working from home or being on call on the weekends much easier for me.

Incarnate-VO writes: With the Friday night release, Linux-friendly space MMO Vendetta Online has launched Dynamic Warfare: a new long-term battle and large-scale warfare mechanic designed to permit factional conquest of geographical areas. In this first-generation implementation, players and NPCs of the Itani and Serco Nations vie for weekly control of 177 sectors within a critical solar system (Deneb). Several different battles may be running concurrently at any time, with a variety of different battle scales ranging from epic conflicts of capship fleets to small fighter-only engagements. The diversity of scale allows both varied gameplay styles and accessibility to players on older computing hardware.
