VMWare Drops US Development Team
« on: 2016/01/31, 13:09:41 »
I was a vmware user for years, but I got tired of their brittle fragile code breaking every time the linux kernel received a developmental improvement, so about 6 or 8 months ago I "bit the bullet" and set up my required Windows environment on a qemu/KVM machine.  It is working great.  Now I see this happened.  Apparently I made my transition just in time.   8)

Hello dibl,
I still remember how much I depended on vmware's industrial strength when i was running a business IT with 300 virtual servers in 2010. The enormous complexity of building that private cloud was astonishing.

Now I've read that vmware tools were deprecated for linux in favour of open-vm-tools.

KVM and Openstack are a huge success, and even for desktop usage vbox and qemu are doing well.
Yes, today i'm quite happy with opensource solutions.

greetings
musca

hehe, it was only possible as a team work, of course ;-)
And we were just cooking with water as everybody else does, too.

I'm glad I made the decision to switch back to VirtualBox.
