    A quick poll to guage interest/demand
    I wanted to cook up a few guides/tutorials for VMWare and was interested in what you guys might like to see first, so heres a poll vote away :)

    and if anyone is a wizz with Virtual PC (Microsoft) I would like to hear from you if you might be interested in converting my VMWare guides to Virtual PC guides so we can run them back to back, and cater for all (if not I'm going to have to learn VPC lol)

    Cheers guys

    Well actually I'd like to see all of them:oops: but starting from the beginning would be nice.

    No matter how much you think you know, there will always be something that makes you go 'aha, never saw it that way before' even about the basic stuff.:oops:

    fear not, as you say, its a good first choice, and may well be more use to some of the newcommers to the Virtual computing joy :)

    theres even stuff i learn still and say 'aha' too, so maybe im not the best person to be writing these guides, lol :)

    I made a vote for "VMWare Networking, introduction to VMWare custom networking, and its terminoligy/usage" although I'd really like the see the basics here in the site this was a choice based on my need rather than the communities. If I could I'd have voted for all the options. :)

    I aggree Si, VM Networking is a VERY important aspect
    as is building a proper host machine
    perhaps i'll release all three of those at the same time :)
    the VM 5 stuff can probably wait till its released, so i can get a better feel for it all

    I cast my vote for start at the beginning. Being new to VMWare, I need to start with simple things. Maybe because I am a simpleton on this stuff.

    I'm very linear. I believe in starting at the beginning and working your way up. Of course, you started the poll to see what would be most useful to start out with for the most members of the board. Since I get the impression that many folks here are not entirely familiar with virtualization, starting with the creation of a virtual machine on a host is the logical first step.

    Just my two cents, of course. :)
