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.
A few weeks ago I’ve posted an article about a new book which was written by my colleague Peter Björk, who’s a ThinApp specialist at VMware but also a great chap. When the book came out I had of course to read it as I know about Peter’s expertise and passion for VMware’s application virtualization solution. In this article I’ll give you a quick overview of what I think about the book.
First of all I have to say that the book is very easy to read for me and this is important as I’m not a native English speaker and it is very practical. The first chapters gives you a great overview of application virtualization and the used vocabulary which is great I think. I don’t like it if I’m reading a book and suddenly I’ve to check the product related vocabulary in the appendix or so.
As I’m working with ThinApp for years as well it was great to see how Peter does explain the fundamentals and functionality of ThinApp.
Actually with VMware ThinApp 4.7 Essentials you’ve everything you need as a new starter to the solution but also as an experienced user you’ll find the book helpful as it gives you also deep insides into parameters and troubleshooting for example.
Especially for people who’re planning to migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7 this book is valuable as they can learn about Internet Explorer 6 virtualization. This is one of the major issues during the migration process. People always think about the Windows applications compatibility, but what about the Web apps?
All in all I can say: A great read from a great colleague!
The book is available in several online book stores as paperback, but also as eBook Reader edition.
In one of my last articles I’ve mentioned that there is a new VMware View book available. Please check this link, to find a sample of the book. There are just a few pages but you can get a first overview of what you’ll get when ordering.

I’m happy to announce that there’s a new book available about VMware’s Enterprise Desktop Solution View. The book is written by Virtualization superstars Mike Laverick and Barry Coombs. Again Mike is donating the money for UNICEF so please go and get a copy of the new book!
This book is all about VMware View 5.1 and ThinApp 4.7.2 administration – and it takes in a wide scope of complementary technologies from the likes of Teradici, BitDefender and F5 Networks. Towards the end the focus switches away from virtual desktops to look at the future of end-user computing including VMware’s ThinApp Factory and Horizon Appliction Manager. This book is a not for profit venture. The monies raised by the sale of the book will be donated in full to the work of UNICEF. UNICEF carries out work across the globe that benefits all children regardless of their social, ethnic, religious or geographical location. It’s our sincere hope that people will use the legitimate sources for acquiring this book – and by doing so support the work of UNICEF.
