TFS is the new SourceSafe in cost

from :

this quote stuck out :

There are 3 main areas that we’ve focused on in 2010 to make TFS attractive to smaller teams:

1. Price – We’re not quite ready to announce the pricing and licensing for 2010 yet but I can tell you that it will be at least as easy and cost effective to get as SourceSafe has been.  Stay tuned for more info on this.

If this is true (and I don’t think it is) it will greatly change the face of .net development organizations over the next few years.

Restoring a Desktop Image to a VMware Virtual Machine with Windows Home Server

  1. Copy the restorecd.iso from \\homeserver\Software\Home PC Restore CD to your VMware server.
  2. Configure a new VMware virtual machine with an appropriately sized disk, a network adapter (I prefer bridged) and a CD ROM Drive pointed to said restorecd.iso from step 1. Do not start the VM at the last step.
  3. Find the vmx file created in step 2. Add a line ethernet0.virtualDev= “e1000”.  This the required trick step since Windows Home Server doesn’t have a driver for the LANCE network chip which vmware normally emulates.
  4. Boot the Virtual Machine and follow the prompts.
