My colleague Edwin had some spare time on his hands and decided to Thinstall the VirtualCenter client. I just tested the client and it works great. Starting the client is as fast, and maybe even faster, as a normal install. Check his article on Thinstallguru.com. Let’s hope VMware will also provide a Thinstalled version soon of the client, fully supported and compatible with Wine for the Linux users. I also heard that Thinstall is busy including Wine code into the Thinstall kernel for compatibility reasons. Hope they will fix this soon.
