You know you've been using Vmware too much...

...when every time you try and login to one of your physical server you keep hitting by mistake.

Any others?

One time, it took me a few min before I realized why one of my [i]physical[/i][/b] servers wasn't showing up in the VMWare Server MUI inventory. <:-(

Pressing CTRL-ALT to leave a window - often used with RDP and terminal sessions - and typing esxtop instead of top.

Yep...I do that one alot. When you are in a (mostly) Windows shop people look at you like there's something wrong with you when they see you do that!

A shell, vi, perl, sed and awk is all you need :smileygrin:

Once when I was showing a co-worker how to do a P2V, without thinking I whispered: "Prepare to be assimilated".

My co-worker heard me and was like: "Maybe you should take a walk.....disconnect."

You press the hot keys to go full/windowed screen, but you realized you're on the non-virtual system.
