Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Unfortunately, yes. There were changes to their contract language this year. We have been at the last three VMworlds in the US and the last two in Europe. We were sponsors each time, with sessions and demos. This isn’t just Microsoft, Citrix is in the same situation.
