The Register has an interesting article discussing Citrix’s acquistition of Xen. Citrix paid $500m for a company that will make $8m this year… Citrix appear to viewing virtualization from their “desktop” end-user perspective, clearly positioning themselves as the best company to delivery thin-client from Citrix MetaFrame Boxes or from Virtual Desktop machines. Interestingly it appears that Citrix will persist in the user-connection license model rather than using the per-socket model that VMware uses. Anyway, the full story appears here on the Registers website:
