From Todd Baginski’s Sharepoint 2003 and MOSS 2007 Blog, the answer for a question on the choice between MS Virtual PC and VMWare for development . . . the answer my friend is blowing in this article 🙂
” To MS, or VM: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to shell out the cash for extra memory and an external hard disk,
Or to take your desktop and turn it into a development server, and by doing so save money.”
My thoughts on his conclusion . . . it didn’t surprised me, I’ve been using VMWare for about 3 years now for development environments and it is really a great solution to have “clean” base environments and to use in projects. Whether it is Virtual PC or VMWare the principle is the same, you save time, and money . . . but it seems that Todd’s study shows that for MOSS Beta2 TR VMWare rules!
