Run Mac desktops virtually on PC servers

I double checked legal issues. DiscCloud is 100% Apple License Compliant. It does not allow you to install OS X in the virtual machine and contains no OS X code or binary. It only works with Mac OS X Leopard clients also.

So . . . Mr. codebilly . . . you're the one claiming that this is the best thing since sliced bread.

Do you . . .or do you not . . . work with for or have an association with this company?

Please explain technically exactly how this works. I'm sure you can do that without giving away any of your proprietery information.

This looks like simply using Leopard installed on your local machine with a fast user switch to another user whose home directory is located in your "cloud". Alternatively . . . since VMWare is involved . . .what operating system is this VM running, how does that run Leopard client, and how does Leopard client get installed onto the VM without violating Apple's EULA.

If you want to shill for them . . . don't hide behind your plain vanilla claims . . . tell us exactly how this virtualizes Leopard and what happens when you (a) are away from the network or (b) want to get to this virtualized Leopard from another Mac.
