It seems that this was the longest series I ever wrote in this blog. The more I learned about this relatively new technology the more I was fascinated about it. By the way, German speaking readers might be interested in my new article about "Applikationsvirtualisierung" at Computerwoche. This post is probably the last one about software virtualization for the moment, although I might review another product sometime later. There might also be an article about the results of this poll.

I don't want to influence your decision too much, thus I will keep this post short. I just want to add one further note. The funny thing about application virtualization is that it brings us back to the pre-Windows period. Do you remember the good old DOS times when applications were residing on a Novel Netware server? No installation was required on desktop computers, the term "registry" was only associated with public authorities, and administrators (called supervisors at the time) didn't have the slightest idea that, only a few years later, Microsoft would send them to "DLL hell!"
In a way, application virtualization turns the clock back. Perhaps it wasn't a good idea at all to integrate applications into the operating system? Well, the fact that application virtualization also has its downsides shows that the answer to this question isn't that simple.
I suppose most of you don't have experience with application virtualization yet, but I hope the articles I wrote about this topic gave you an overview about this technology. I am curious to know what you think about it.

To take part in this poll, it doesn't matter whether you read the articles in my series or not. Also, if you don't know what application virtualization is, you can vote as well. I suppose your answer will simply be "No" then.
