Redmond Report Article: Back to the Future
The January issue of Redmond magazine has an article about three
IT managers who are using virtualization technologies to help
make their work environments more efficient and secure. Well,
the VMware people have added another usage for their virtual
machines and it has a real “Doh! Why didn’t we think of that
before!” effect: a pre-built virtual machine for the Firefox
Web browser. What this means is that once you put the browser
in its own little sanctuary, it won’t affect the rest of your
network, no matter how many viruses or how much spyware it picks
up. Neato, huh?
