Even more nx7400 LCD Display Issues

August 24, 2007

The display on my primary laptop, an HP nx7400 has once again quit working. This is the third time this has happened in one year. The laptop boots with no issues, just no LCD display. Looks like another trip back to the repair depot for it…


Busy News Days for Virtualization

August 16, 2007

It has been a busy couple of days in the virtualization realm of technology. Yesterday VMware had their IPO. Their stock did very well, increasing around 75%. Personally I expected this. They do make a very good product and are certainly the leaders in this arena for now.

Today Citrix announced their acquisition of XenSource for $500 million.

Meanwhile Microsoft continues to work on their virtualization products for the Enterprise with Virtual Server available now and Windows Server Virtualization coming 180 days after the release of Windows Server 2008.

Certainly very interesting times in the virtual world. It seems more and more companies are seeing the value in virtualization. Now it is just a matter of choosing which solution will work the best for you.
