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.

This Q&A from Alessandro is quite interesting from my point of view, but more importantly for this quote from Wes Wasson:

XenSource does not get any revenue from the underlying hypervisor, nor will Citrix. Our revenue will come from adding a compelling set of application delivery value propositions on top of the hypervisor, whether it is Xen or Viridian. The more successful Viridian is, the more opportunity Citrix will have to sell value-added application delivery offerings on top of this platform, much as we do today with Windows Server in the Terminal Services market.
