I posted about SVS (Software Virtualization Solution) in the Product announcements Forum.

SVS (Software Virtualization Solution) is such a different approach to software deployment, and works so well, I think we will all be hearing a lot more about it very soon!

Here are some links:

Altiris Software Virtualization Solution Official Site

Juice: Alteris Software Virtualization Solution Web Community

Altiris shakes up Windows configuration management SVS 2.0 uses virtualization to improve app deployment model

Best of all...

Software Virtualization Solution 2.0 to be Free for Personal Use

Update: added "(Software Virtualization Solution)" to title.

I think MSI failed to fully address some of the problems it was meant to solve as well as adding significant complexity to software deployment. I don't want to completely fault MSI because there are plenty of bad developers out there as well. I hate to see Software Virtualization go mainstream for idealistic reasons but unless you can get the computing world in general to release better code I think this is the way packaging is going to go. I'm glad Altiris is in the game because it is giving the Application Virtualization realm some credit as being a legitimate solution. Before Altris came on the block it was hard to get people to even look at Softricity. Now the battle is on to offer Software Virtualization. I beleive Altiris pushed Microsoft into the arena and thats why you see Softgrid technology being offered with SMS. I think the rest of the systems management products are now in a scramble to offer some sort of Application Virtualization technology.
