Re: @Anon Useless...

We build production-ready VMs in under 30 minutes, even in RHEL. (Kickstart, basically.) It lets RedHat do their thing (for some reason, that includes only the last point release..) then yum update -y, then reboot.

> that would suggest nearly 4 days of downtime for patching a year!

You have clearly never rebooted an HP server. Most of 10 minutes doing 8 layers of bios setup before it even THINKS about booting...

I didn't preorder this after dead island 1 - it wasn't just the half-written story (and they only coded/recorded half of THAT) but the insane number of bugs that got me.

I finally gave up on it after slamming my jeep into a group of trees and having it teleport into the middle of them (2 per side). It began bouncing higher and higher on it's shocks (I hopped out) until it stuck itself about 20' in the air, still pinned by the trees..

"multiple gmail accounts"?

Um... android has supported that for quite a while now. The multi-user is for allowing two people to share a phone ("roommate, hand me your phone real quick") without sharing the data on the phone.

It also now has a guest mode, which is great - I have a stack of outdated devices I hand out when we play chromecast games and such, but with this I can just set our 'real' devices to guest mode and let visitors use them. (After an incident, we split out the guest network and chromecast is too dumb to handle the passcode login page, so it only talks to residents.)

Suppose they gave a VMworld and vSphere didn't show up?

its easy.

Ask any sales/tech rep - 6.0 is late in the first quarter next year.
