Re: What I can never understand...

I'll bite...

I care what Apple does because of the social and economic implications of a company of that size doing what it does (linked to 'free' labour, poor working practices amongst contractors, tax dodging etc)

You are correct, I won't buy their product, doesn't mean to say I can't say why. In fact, I encourage debate, with evidence, rather than telling someone they are wrong on the internet and expect everyone to follow me.

Marketing can work both ways, to encourage product/service usage, as well as discourage. If you prevent the discouragement, I'm assuming you have never read any reviews anywhere, nor listened to any friends or family's experiences with anything they have bought or used?

In regards to "you don't have enough money to impress her, move on", a quick *Google* has shown a Galaxy S4 can be had from between £400 and £500. An iPhone 5 between £400 and £500. Guessing you don't understand economics (see first point for further clarification)

I have near-on 1TB of photos, so no way is any of that going near SkyDrive for the money they ask.

Re: Windows desktop VDI

Hi David,

I did a similar project for a previous employer.

We had 2 servers running VMWare ESX (3.5 at the time), along with the AD & File servers as virtuals, alongside the clients. Obviously 2 servers are probably out of the price range here, the second was used for redundancy more than anything, each could run 100+ client VMs without breaking a sweat.

The only thing we had issues with was the SAN performance, but I'm guessing you'll be using local disks due to cost, so won't be an issue for you.

The original outlay was quite expensive, but when you factor in most servers are usually given a 5 year lifespan, it worked out cheaper in the long run as the dumb terminals never needed upgrading themselves.

There is the licencing issue, as the employer had an enterprise licence, these weren't an issue for us.

Re: Stargate?

As an ex-employee of said Teleport, it does exist, and I believe is still operational, that is, of course, whether they have sold another of their 9.5m satellite dishes to a Saudi wanting Sky TV.
