Getting started with SoftGrid

Ok, so far my attempts to get up to speed on SoftGrid have been not very fruitful to say the least. Now I found this video and watch it while writing this blog post. The video is part of the Windows Vista Enterprise Video Demos. The presenter is Chad Jones, a Senior PM in the Windows product group

I am half way through and must say it is of some value if you do not know anything about Application Virtualization at all.
