Dunno how you people see it, but to me it seems new winds are/have been blowing for a while HP giving up the PC market, OS-X, Smartphones, Anderoid, Web Apps and Clouds (with and without I´s). The point being, companies are looking to make money and people are tired of recognasable (and buggy) interfaces. I´m sure Windows and WI will be around a few years still, but well face it, it´s the story of 21 year old virgin. Maybe it´s time to invest on new knowledge, but what?
Your thoughts?

Thats what we have been struggling to understand as far as client management goes.You have all these companies that are:

Not spending the engineering efforts on developing new application packaging tools,
Vendors supplying un-attended install functions built in more common these days.
Client management tools comes with some sort of virtualization layer tool.

So what now? Is it some sort of hybrid crossplatform model where some apps are virtualized on VDI, and some become a mix of virtual and actual installed apps? I know Photoshop and Autocad will be real installs because of the horse power involved on the desktop side. But that leaves a huge population as candidates for VDI or some other technology? Which leaves a logistical nightmare for support?

Have a look at the VMWare Appblast preview on YouTube
I thought that was what the future might look like in application provisioning when I first saw it. Not necessarily VMWare, but the general idea of platform-independent application delivery. VDI to me is just a small step on the way there...
