It's one thing for a virtual desktop like VMware Horizon to handle a relatively low-powered application like Word. What happens with something that's more graphically intensive and needs more data -- like Google Earth? As part of our IT Survivor challenge, I decided to find out.
Also worth noting: I edited the video using Windows Movie Maker on the Dell Chromebook running virtualised Windows 7, and I couldn't tell the difference between that and doing it on my regular machine. I'd feared that adding files and saving might be slower, but it worked like a charm. I'm quite impressed.
