      I've always been a huge fan of Citrix products. I built a career round it for the last twenty years but unless they do something different and do it quickly, they risk fading into an also-ran.

      XenApp doesn't really do anything that RDS can't natively do, beyond perhaps scalability;

      XenDesktop (and VDI in general) in my own opinion has always been a solution looking for a problem;

      XenMobile is bettered by the other alternatives out there on the whole*

      NetScalers are still fantastic pieces of kit but again, competition has largely caught up

      XenServer was a joke - all that investment that they then just spaffed away. VMware is the king and even Hyper-V does things better and has more support

      I'd hate to see them become a footnote in the margins of computing history but they do seem to be heading that way.

      *I will caveat that I haven't used XenMobile recently so I may be wide of the mark here.
