Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

In an article in the FT today Jong-Yong Yun makes the comment - "Watching TV on a mobile phone is a pleasure"

His pet peeve that makes him mad is - "A gadget which I cannot instinctively figure out how to switch on and off - and use - makes me mad. If consumers need a manual to learn how to operate it, it cannot gain popularity. A gadget should be simple enough for everyone."

This for me resonates with what I feel Citrix needs to look at next.....

Citrix still has a lot of good will in the marketplace today based on the Classic Presentation Server, specifically because this product "does what it says on the tin", it is relatively easy to set up a small system and get 70 - 80% of the functionality you are after without too much effort or "referring to the manual"

What I believe Citrix needs to focus on now is digesting the recent acquisitions, and getting all of their products to the same state of being relatively simple to deploy and get the first 70% (or so) of product value before you have to start breaking out the manual.
