E mais rápido se tornará com estes projectos da IBM, o VERDE e o Ubuntu da Canonical.
The month of December has already been unkind to Microsoft. The software giant’s Windows operating system and its Internet Explorer browser saw significant market share drops reported on back-to-back days.
IBM announced the availability of a “Microsoft alternative” virtual desktop that uses virtualization technology from Virtual Bridges and incorporates Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux and IBM’s Lotus applications. Based on Virtual Bridges’s Virtual Enterprise Remote Desktop Environment (VERDE), the desktop environment is far more affordable than running Microsoft desktops, claims IBM.
The VERDE virtual desktop is distributed from Linux servers to “any laptop, browser, or mobile device,” says IBM. Announced by Virtual Bridges at the end of October, VERDE is said to be a Linux-only (host, guest and client) virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) product. Features include an integrated connection broker, KVM-based VM technology, multimedia and sound support, and local printing, says Virtual Bridges.
