Today VMware announced the acquisition of Thinstall. Thinstall is a supplier that makes the virtualization of applications possible. Thinstall offers an Application Virtualization platform with which Windows applications are offered as ‘self-contained” EXE files. These EXE files can be executed without any installation, Administrator or PowerUser rights. Official Press release: https://www.vmware.com/whatsnew/thinstall.html

Some months ago I wrote an article about Thinstall, what does this solution offer, what are the advantages and what are the disadvantages. You can read it here: https://www.brianmadden.com/opinion/Application-Virtualization-with-Thinstall

I guess those who don't think Thinstall is a valid player will have to think again. VMWare has $$$ and big sales channels to push this technology out. I think this is great for everyone in the application virtualization space because yet another big player wants a slice of the market.
