Answer

The Virtual Owl website is designed to provide you with a resource for downloading a “virtual desktop” tool on your personal computer or laptop. A virtual desktop is a simulated user interface with a collection of software programs that is located on a remote computer. By connecting your computer to the virtual desktop, you have access to programs that you might not have installed on your computer. The tool for connecting your computer to the virtual desktop is VMware View™.

The Downloads screen contains links to download the Virtual Owl Desktop Client for Windows and Mac. Help Resources contains links to booklets and videos to assist you with installing and using the Virtual Owl Desktop. VMware View Help gives you detailed information about working with VMware View.
