Impressed - easier than alternatives

Post by Unknown_User_271 » Fri Feb 03, 2006 11:04 pm

This is a really great piece of software. I just downloaded 2.25, and expect no problems since I had none with the previous version.

Though I've tried to get a lot of people to try or use this thing, I am coming up against unexpected resistance. I'm not at all sure why, but possibly I'm just not explaining how the thing works well enough.

So far, I have also had 100% success running other applications and browsers that I have tried running "in a sandbox". It performs all the required functions in such a simple way -- many people I know are downloading and using the VMware browser appliance (at 200 megs) to accomplish the same ends.

I hope it stays free, of course, but if we can convince enough people to use this thing that it becomes commercially viable, a little money is certainly deserved. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. I guess the idea takes a little bit getting used to. It may be easier to explain "a whole separate computer", even if virtual, than the concept of a sandbox. VMware is certainly less abstract, with its single separate window for the entire guest machine.
