quote: Let me get this straight. Microsoft is touting a new "Virtual Desktop" feature? Really? This is something Linux and UNIX have had since the 1980's. The eighties! This was cutting edge when E.T. was in movie theaters, the Falklands War was on the news, and DeLorean car ads were on TV. Microsoft is just now getting this capability in 2015? Good grief that is some crufty garbage coming out of Redmond these days. You couldn't pay me to run Windows.
