Hello readers! I’ve decided to dedicate my Friday posts to listing what I think are the top 5 blog posts of the week from the virtualization blogosphere. Along with the top 5 blog posts, I’ll add a bonus blog post that has nothing to do with virtualization, but deals with something important to technology as a whole.

Diego QuintanaCloud Computing, navegadores y como cambian las reglas de juego
Cloud Computing, navegadores y como cambian las reglas de juego es el titulo más apropiado para explicar como la tendencia de software as a service (SaaS) y el consumo de aplicaciones en la nube hicieron que el navegador más famoso de los 90´s fuera diluyendo su participación en el mercado para bajar hasta el 52 % en desktops y casi no existir en los dispositivos móviles…

Tommy TrogdenHow to install configure and deploy VMware View 5 on vSphere 5
It seems to me that at this moment the hottest discussion going on in the IT world is around Virtual Desktops.
