Re: That must hurt
"...Son, the Terminal Services Edition of NT 4.0 used Citrix : MS was a Citrix client before you were born..."
Now a bit more history - Citrix bought the source to Windows NT 3.11 and rewrote parts of it to create WinFrame.
Microsoft decided to buy the code back to create 'Hydra" - Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Services Edition and Citrix created MetaFrame to run on top of it.
The fact is, Citrix, traditionally did this kind of thing before, and better, than Microsoft. Microsoft played catchup with each successive version of Windows Server, whilst Citrix usually managed to stay one or two steps ahead.
It has always been an interesting conundrum why Microsoft never showed interest in buying Citrix outright.
