Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Hardware site CPU Review has just posted its review of Red Hat Linux 6.0 on an AMD chip, but says its support for sound cards still leaves a lot to be desired. William Henning, the reviewer of the package, also said he thought it was a shame that the price of the software has risen to $79.95. But on the positive side, Henning says that the stability of the product is excellent, while it is given away with a stack of software. The review recommends that if wannabes wannabe happy, they should stick with a SoundBlaster 16 or 64, and other standard components. Go here to see the review, which uses an AMD K6-2/400 part as its microprocessor core. ®
