Submission + - If Windows 7 fails, Citrix (not Linux) wins (

Julie188 writes: "It is likely that Windows 7 will fail to lure XP users away from their beloved, aging operating system. After all, Windows 7 is nothing more than a new-and-improved Vista. But eventually old PCs must be replaced and then we'll see corporations, desperate to get out of the expense of managing Windows machines, get wise. Instead of buying new Windows 7 PCs, they could deliver virtualized XP desktops to a worker's own PC and/or mobile device. So predicts Microsoft blogger Mitchell Ashley who has been using Windows 7 full time and concluded it's doomed and that Citrix's Project Independence has the right idea."
