VMware to acquire Thinstall
On January 15, 2008, VMware, Inc. announced plans to acquire Thinstall.
VMware is well known for its operating system virtualization products, both for desktops (VMware Workstation) and for servers.
Thinstall Virtualization suite is an application virtualization solution which is unique because it doesn't require a server or an agent installation on the client. Therefore it can also be used by ISVs as an alternative to setup programs.
