There are lots of options when it comes to desktop virtualization, what have you implemented and why did you choose that approach?

hey Bob,

in my packaging team most packagers have been running their own ESXi servers for a couple months now on an extra desktop. This allows us to each run and manage (using vSphere Client) a couple of VMs for our packaging duties. Only drawback to this is that there's nothing available to do USB passthrough, so any apps that require hardware have to be packaged using another solution (VMWare workstation, physical machines)

The staging of the VMs is done using a Ghostcast server for XPs and SCCM OSD for Windows7

Hey Bob,

Just as pjgeutjens stated, in our environment our packagers use a combination of VMware machines from an additional desktop, and MS Virtual PC 2007. This has good benefits as you can package your application, then revert back to a clean state when you are done.
