This weeks chinwag is with Stu McHugh. I know Stu from the London VMware User Group where he’s a
regular attendee. At the last VMUG, Stu presented (for the first time, well done Stu!) about his
experiences of rolling out a virtual desktop solution in his environment. It was the kind of
gold-dust real-world customer focused thing which is short supply. So I was keen to get Stu on the
chinwag to share his unique experiences with others.
His blog is located here: http://stumchugh.wordpress.com/
And he’s also on twitter: @stu_mchugh

Your project use WinXP, I was interested to know why you didn’t use VDI as jumping off point for
It looks like you backwards and forwards between RDP vs PCoIP – what caused you fall along the
lines of PCoIP…?
