Wow, sensible ideas *do* seem to spread by themselves … I just read in eWeek that more and more companies are using desktop virtualization. No kidding. I have been using desktop virtualization for more than 4 years now, with my production machine (Email, Blog reading, OpenOffice, etc.) virtualized now for almost a year. Anything else would be totally insane for me, especially since I use a lot of beta (or alpha) software that has a tendency to break certain OSes.
