VMware to retire the “thick-client”

VMware has announced it will finally not be releasing a thick client (C# client) for the next version of vSphere.  The last few releases have lacked new features for the aging thick-client, while new features were added to the web client.  It was only a matter of time before it was finally retired.

Fear not:  the HTML5 web client will be fully-featured come release time.  Grab and test the current HTML5 Web Client VMware Fling in your lab to help improve the HTML5 client before release:

The next version details like version numbers (6.1?  6.5?  7?) and release date are still unknown.
