  1. Your are right about the cloud being available though they do state that your data is cached local and synced up to the cloud when connected. But Google also states that their focus is netbooks, at least for now. It is designed to boot and connect to the internet fast. The demo showed them power on a laptop and get to a login screen in 7 seconds. Now I am sure that is to change by the time it reachs final release it is a nice focus for a netbook rather than XP. I could never see this being my main OS but if some one just uses the computer to access the internet (like my wife) this would be a great option. Also, if I ever do drop some money on a netbook I could see myself using this if it does all that I need. I just started to download the source code a little bit ago so hopefully I can build a VM simple enough and see how it feels.
  2. I don't know if yall have been following this. Google looks like it is trying to redesign the home PC. To me it really seems like they are trying to virtualize the home PC. Well yesterday they made the announcement that the OS source will be available starting yesterday. http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/11/rel...+Google+Blog%29
  3. So without giving my resume in detail, I have been working in the field for about 4 years starting as store PC tech, moving to an enterprise service desk and then their field services. Currently my friend was able to land me a really good gig at his company as a contractor working on their rather large production VMware environment. It was supposed to be a 6 month contract-to-hire but it is looking like the budget to bring on the new FTE isn't coming through. I have really enjoyed working with VMware and so I am trying to think of what to do to help make me more marketable in that area since I will only have 6 months experience with the technology. My mind went immediately to getting a vmware certification. To the point of the topic I have three Microsoft certs (MCSA, MCTS, MCITP) to go along with my BS in Technical Management from Devry (yeah I know but they served my purposes). I just wonder if all certifications still hold respect in the community since there are so many classes that "teach the test" and even worse those places that sell questions to exams. I am sure this comes up a lot on the forums and any responses would be appreciated. And since it is my first time posting even though I have followed Hak5 for awhile I must say the show is awesome.
