Virtual Desktops.
« on: October 18, 2019, 06:04:16 AM »
Hello Forum again,

Virtual desktops .......this seems a great idea to "manage"  systems that start to have involved usage.

It is almost something like having "Virtual Spare machines" .......in the sense that Apps will "Locate" their running to just any........ Vdesktop....... you opened that app IN .......

(The Fresh "instance" of the APP opens on whatever ....Vdesktop...you do that on....)
(........needs the app in question, to be mulltiple instantiational)
 
It just seems a nice fluid way to "manage"  multiple interactions with computer enviro's

it would be great if (M___ft)  had an offering of also just virtual sandboxed instances of itself.....

Does it have  that feature   in the Latest  Operating Systems...?
(....a simple sandboxing paradigm...)

Answer =  Yes.....it seems that Simple Virtual Sandboxing......exists

thanks


Vin

Hello Forum,

Managed to develop "VM"'s  on the host machine. 

Then execute and host them.  Then realize that the "managing console@ offers to ability to then "share" those live OS's  (ove network)   (Hyper-V)

So that server // client    (over network ) 

The sharing of IT resources.     (Information Technology)

thx ..

ps

(some huge red herring.......is server "time" settings ....throws everything off )

Virtual desktops have been around for decades. I used them in the '90's on Solaris Openlook and HP-UX VUE before they moved to CDE. VMware 1.0 was released in 1999, and I had production VM's the next year. Just goes to show, if you want to see what Microsoft will be working on next, look at what Unix/Linux was doing 10-20 years ago.

Right Andyj

Maybe you worked on the development of OS releases then.........O__0........



Yeah.....it is difficult to come up with inventive useful systems Design.
 

...i think they have "user metrics"  and the feedback is then how the future
is designed.

Well, i am  sort of not sure--- how i even stumbled upon virtual desktops. ...?

it was probably something "free"which then caught my fancy.


Thx

Vin

yeah .....Sir

That is a great idea.   Since maybe many many people have "cluttered"  situations with single SSd  or HDD machines.

Though, suppose they had a spare(s)  drives.  Drives that acted identical to the real primary drive.....and a user

could begin a new episode    (of installing apps to that drive -----orderly fashion ----resumed for  the user/

thx
