New VMware View Book in German language

without comments

It has taken a long time but finally my buddies Sascha and Matthias (Photo) have released their VMware View Book. The book is only in available in German language, so sorry for my English readers. But anyway for me it’s a great event as this is the first German language View book which was published commercially. As you may remember as a long time reader I’ve written a German language View book for version 4.6 and I’ve published it for free.

It was a coincident that I was in a meeting with Matthias today when he received the first copy of the book! German readers: Please feel free to buy this great book.
