Mostafa Khalil Makes Twitter Debut With VMware Nostalgia

SnagIt CaptureFor the Twitter folks… (The Real) Mostafa Khalil (@MostafaVMW, VCDX #2) is now on Twitter.  I’d recommend following him as there are some amazing changes brewing on the vSphere storage horizon.  Hopefully he’ll privilege us on a semi regular basis with bits from his great storage mind.

For the non Twitter folks…  Seven days ago, Mostafa posted the picture shown below.  It’s the Getting Started Guide for VMware Workstation 1.0 for Linux. It comes to us from the year 1999.

Seeing this is enough to make a vEvangelist tear up.  I’d love to get my hands on this product at some point and take it for a spin.  Perhaps I’ll have a chance if the VMTN Subscription makes its return.  My VMware journey didn’t start until a year later with Workstation 2.0.2 for Windows.  Look at the file size – 5MB.

  1. I’ve got the first version for Windows around here somewhere on CD. I tried installing it on Windows 7 a while back for the heck of it and it seemed to work ok, but I never actually tried creating any VMs. After seeing this maybe I will…
