[THIN] Re: Pano VDI Solution

Steve,

Great question.  I want to learn more myself.  Everything I read about it is
good.  The big problem I¹ve been told about it is that the big boy
(Microsoft, Vmware, Citrix) don¹t want anything to do with it and that
because of this it will not get the buyoff it needs to more of a standarized
remoting protocol.   I would be interested to know what you guys this of
this too?  Again, this is what I¹m told and I can think of a few reasons
Microsoft and Citrix would not like it but I don¹t know why Vmware would be
against it.   

Thanks.  This is a great topic....  A beefy remoting protocol is really
needed...
