Sumit Dhawan over in the Citrix XenDeskop group has posted a very interesting article in the run up to VMworld 09. I’m also hearing some interesting rumors about activity in user personalization space. Sumit makes some very important points….which are all based on actual customer implementations.

Looking forward to more dialog on this!
