vNinja used by VMware

Thanks to Maish Saidel-Keesing, vExpert 2010 and blogger over at Technodrone I have been made aware that VMware has used one of my posts here on vNinja in their internal presentation material.

The material in question is vSphere 4.1 to 4.0 differences (page 44 and 45 in vSphere 4.1 Deep Dive - Part 1 - v6.pptx), where my post about Using USB Pass-through in vSphere 4.1 is quoted and my screenshots used. I guess no-one else had tested USB passthrough in vSphere 4.1 with USB based UPS setups before I did.

While I think this is great, and I’m really honored that my content here can be used as internal VMware resources, I must say that I would have loved to be notified, and asked, by Iwan Rahabok when he created the material. Iwan did provide links and source attribution in his presentation, but a direct message from him would have been great as well.
