Only passing along what VMware told us take it or leave it. We plan to install it at a client the next day and VMware agreed so ther you go. Oh and what kind of dribble is this

"We won't blast you, well I won't at least. Remember no one is perfect I mean everyone sometimes says something wrong and yes you found your own mistake nothing toworry about"

Please just stick to the issues and questions and not flood the forums with garbage like this

well, maybe I missed something, but I didn't hear any release date during the webcast ...

looks like I won't smoke anything from the burning of the 3.5 CD for a while

Well, it was some generalities about the past, present and future of VMware. She talked about some 3.5/2.5 features as if they were already available. She answered some questions about the economic side of VMware (competition, offerings, last term financial result, etc...). I didn't learn much really. But, as english isn't my first language and the audio was horrible, maybe I missed some importants points ...

edit : other subjects : hypervisors, desktop virtualization.

Wow if this isn't a fluent language, your typing skills are amazing..

I wish I knew that much about a "2nd" language, I would be good!

the audio is crappy, so I don't think it is you....

Well that certainly was uneventful. No dates, no real information (it was a basic regurgitation of the what's new on the VM Ware site). no new info, and nothing to get excited about.

Diane is not a good speaker at all, she needs a spokesperson.. her presentation was hard to follow with all the "ummm, well, er, ah, I don't think, anectdotes, and buts". It was like her presentation was spur of the moment.. what too busy to even do a presentation before hand?!?! Anyway, it was good info but it needs to be done by a fully qualified instructor it would have been more concise and easy to follow had this been done.

I hate to break everyone's bubble, but you are living in a dream world.

ESX 3.5 is NOT coming out until 2008, February maybe March, most likely April. Don't get your hopes up.

How much do you want to wager on this?

Well, it's certainly won't be released today. Maybe VMware is waiting to release 3i and 3.5 together ? If it's so, mid-december is realistic with the information I got.

Looks like it is next week instead:

Update: As readers probably saw by themselves Diane Greene didn't launch VI3.5 today as speculated.

virtualization.info has learned that the definitive launch date is set somewhere in the Dec. 6-11 week.
