Citrix To Run Win7 On Your iPad, Virtually

January 31, 2010

iPad enthusiasts around the world are probably having a hard time right now selling their companies on the new gadget, well Citrix wants to help you with that.

They announced yesterday that they are planning to release an iPad version of their Citrix receiver software. What does that mean? Well, if your company runs Citrix solutions, you'll be able to use systems like Microsoft's Windows 7 on your iPad, virtually at least:

It turns out the 9.7-inch display on the iPad with a 1024x768 screen resolution works great for a full-VDI XenDesktop. Windows applications run unmodified and securely in the data center, and even multiple applications at once

Citrix' VP admits this might mostly be a good argument for people to convince their company to get them the new toy, but he believes the potential is huge.

It makes me think that, for the rest of us, a good multi-touch enhanced VNC client could be an amazing app, don't you think?
