March 2, 2012 will be a date that should be remembered. At that date the decision was made to build the largest VDI in the Cloud architecture. An incredible 1.200.000 VDI desktops should be started in the Cloud waiting for end users.

As almost every device is supported, it will change the world of computing as we know it right now. Why buy a PC if you can have access to your own fully supported desktop at a fraction of the price? Every day you logon you will get a complete new PC, with your own personal settings and your own software. And you can use it any time, any where and on any device.

May 1st we will have the first 100.000 desktops up and running and we will have over 400 applications packaged. And it will grow and grow.

MyUninstaller tool is helpful to find the correct uninstall string for whatever installed software application.

This portable tool shows a list of all installed application with a lot of details and additional information that the standard Add/Remove applet doesn't display: product name, company, version, uninstall string, installation folder, etc.

Other interesting feature is the export function that allows to save all information into a text file or HTML file, this can be really helpful in case of you will have to re-install manually you current software after a PC migration.

System Requirements: Any version of Microsoft Windows from Windows 98 to Windows 7

Customers who use Symantec Workspace Virtualization can choose between the Standard Version or the Pro Version that includes streaming. Between SWV and SWV Pro you can also use SMART. And there is a new version available that you can use to centraly manage your applications, and give the end user some control on his layers like activate, de-activate and reset.

The new version can be downloaded from our website or you can send me a message and I will ensure you get a version.

Just like SWV, DinamiQs SMART is free for home and personal use. In the world of VDI DinamiQs has set new standards for speed, efficiency and end-user experience. Part of the DinamiQs VDI stack is S.M.A.R.T., which has developed into a full fledged Desktop and Software management application.

The S.M.A.R.T. software helps end-users access those applications that they are entitled to. S.M.A.R.T. allows self-service and self-repair of these –packaged applications....

What once started as a website for Virtualization nerds has become the huge Symantec community of today.

I can still remember the day's that Altiris Juice started. What a cool idea to reward contributors and give space for those nerds.

And wow.

Looking at my stats I just saw that within three weeks i will be celebrating my 5 year membership:

Member for: 4 years 49 weeks
 

If I think about this, there is no other webiste that I visit and contribute to as long as what i still call juice.

And that is what it is for me

for almost 5 year Symantec connect gives me juice in my work.

 

Keep up the good work.
