In Demystifying the Virtual Desktop: Starting with Desktop Virtualization, Michael Fox succeeds in educating individuals on the impact of desktop virtualization. He does this by creating a blueprint for use by Information Technology companies so that they might become more cost-effective and efficient by implementing a virtual desktop environment. The different parts of the book range from simple to complex, but all concepts are explained clearly and concisely-a testament to Michael Fox's knowledge and expertise in the field. Fox acknowledges that this book is not exhaustive and will not answer every single question about desktop virtualization; however, it addresses the vital questions that should be answered prior to beginning the journey into the virtual environment. Examples of issues regarding the actual process include, "How to choose the right client, The drawbacks and benefits of the virtual desktop in the corporate world, Who are the most important people to talk to, When to perform the most critical steps, and Which documents you must prepare throughout the project." What's especially impressive is that Fox does all this in a generic form-without promoting a specific brand or vendor-with generalized information that can provide help for people worldwide. Described as game-changing technology, the virtual desktop is shifting the technological landscape and revamping the way we use computers for work. Moving away from the era of server virtualization, desktop virtualization is yet a more cost-effective and efficient system of conducting work and communication. As readers immerse themselves into this new world of technology, it is important to understand that the most important aspect of desktop virtualization is user experience and productivity. The fact that it will make life easier on the entire IT landscape is yet another benefit. In IT language, yet simple enough for most audiences to understand, Demystifying the Virtual Desktop: Starting with Desktop Virtualization is ultra-effective in making a foreign and abstract technology come across as something quite clear, viable, and truly instrumental not only in the corporate world, but also in serving the needs of all users in a most efficient manner. Appropriately titled, Fox spends his entire book removing the veil of confusion by demystifying the virtual desktop. His product, I believe, is an overwhelming success in establishing at the very core, a profound understanding of desktop virtualization.
