I just read Scott Lowe’s post about VMware Workstation 6.5 having Unity, the seamless windowing technology.

This is going to be a killer feature for a lot of people, especially Linux folks. Many enterprise software packages require Internet Explorer, or have a Windows-based client, or have a client that requires a specific (read: ancient) version of Windows, IE, or both. It sucks being locked into a certain OS for everything just because of one application. A way around that is very welcome, and I’ve been envious of the Macintosh folks for some time now because of it.

I guess I’m going to have to fire up a copy of the beta now, given my piqued interest. I see a desktop reboot in my future[0].


[0] I’ll just preempt the snarky Windows comment… yeah, I know. 🙂
