Chromebooks and Virtual Desktops

Hi Folks,

Our school runs a VMWare Virtual Desktop system using both the View Client and the Blast HTML5 client. Until now we haven't been considering Chromebooks because the Blast HTML5 client is, at best, good for occasional temporary use. But now there is an actual View Client out for Chrome OS. Is anyone else looking at this as a solution? Has anyone here tried the new View Client? Our VM team is seeing if our current system will require upgrading to use the new client. I'm hoping to do hands-on testing by Fall.

We have a nursing program that had been handing out full laptops to students in the program, but those are quickly becoming outdated. Chromebooks using the VM system may be a viable and drastically less expensive option for this program.

I'd love to hear about any experiences using VMs through Chromebooks.
