Virtual world

Virtualisation is coming more and more into our lives.

Right now I’m setting up a “jail” XP virtual machine to install a stubborn application there (that doesn’t work with Vista and is sometimes affected by patches, so it needs a special treatment) and playing around with XP Mode in Windows 7 RC on my laptop. At the same time, I have another virtual machine opened, where I’m connected through Citrix client to a remote access machine at work, which is, guess what, just a virtual box running on some access farm.

I know it’s a bit geeky, but wait 3-4 years and you’ll see the same amount of virtualisation in regular people’s lives.
