I read little bit about vmware view, and it has many files to download and try, could someone please write in point form which vmware view programs need to be installed
on the server side and which on the desktop side?  I can eastablish a small lab to test it.
Any Microsoft products?  Also please put in point form which products need to be installed on server side and which on the client side?
