They've been embracing and extending it for a very long time now. Citrix first came out for NT 3.51 I believe. Microsoft allowed them to live as long as they licensed their (citrix's) technology to them (microsoft) which Microsoft used for their Remote Desktop Protocol in NT4.

Speaker? I've worked on thousands of computers over the last 30 years, and I have never experienced a worn out computer speaker. My current desktop is using the same AR 'Powered Partners' that I bought in 1991.
Remember those notebook docks where you slid open a door on the back of the notebook, put it on a couple of locating pins and throw a lever to push it into the 50-billion pin connector?

I've still got a Toshiba T200 running Windows for Pen Computing 3.1, from about 10 years before that. Battery even still holds a charge. Back in the day, I had it up and running with a Raytheon Aviator wireless card and Mosaic 2.0.0b4.
