New Virtualization Presentation for TechDays 2009

And I am involved with another presentation that will be given at the 2009 Sun Technology Developer Days, short TechDays, events across the globe. Nicolas Droux and I co-authored it, borrowing heavily from older presentations. It is entitled "Virtualization from the Desktop to the Enterprise". I will be delivering this talk in São Paulo, Brazil next week, back to back with the "Developing and Deploying Securely" presentation. (Read more about that presentation in my blog entry New Solaris Security Presentation for TechDays 2009.)

Whenever I know the build number for which the fix is expected, I will add them to the text below.
