Dustin will be presenting general VMware and Microsoft Virtual Server comparisons and I'm presenting on the free VMware Server beta. If you're within driving distance you should come check it out. I'm covering details on how were using the free version, how it's benefited us, things to avoid, etc ... including nifty graphs of our server utilization and some demo-ing virtual servers live right off my laptop.
This will also give me a chance to create a real powerpoint using the new Powerpoint2007 beta2. I've not really used the new version yet ... great excuse to kick the tires.
Ed's on vacation this week so he'll miss all the fun ... and free giveaways at the meeting.
