Oracle and SUN Yesterday (today if you're in the US), Sun released the latest version of its virtualisation solution, VirtualBox 3.1. Among speed improvements and other smaller features, the biggest news is that Virtualox 3.1 introduces something called teleportation: you can move running VMs between machines - servers or clients, different architectures, different host operating systems, it doesn't matter to VirtualBox. Coincidentally, this reminded me of an idea I once had about moving running applications between machines.

As you say the remote Plasmoid stuff is like what Thom describes, but it's far from new. Either as idea or implementation.

Saw this years ago with QNX and the Neutrino(?) GUI, wher you could take a application and move it from one computer to another.
