Executive Summary

Often users must access applications in Operating System (OS) environments other than the native OS on their personal laptop or desktop system. Companies that undertake migration initiatives to open source desktop platforms, for example, sometimes need to provide users with access to critical legacy applications. In other cases, when a user desktop platform is upgraded to state-of-the-art hardware, older operating environments may be no longer supported as the native OS on the new hardware platform. In these cases, desktop virtualization can be a cost-effective answer.
