Citrix Brings Windows to the iPhone!

Citrix, the folks behind Go To Meeting and Go To My PC -- and if you believe the urban myth, a good portion of the Windows kernel -- have just significantly harshened Steve Jobs' mellow and sent yet another shudder down Tim Cook's spine.

While VNC/Remote Desktop Apps have been available for the iPhone for a while (see Chad's Jaadu vs. Mocha Showdown), a helpful Fortune Blog reader points us the differences in the Citrix solution:

“The Citrix client gives access to hosted applications on XenApp servers — allowing dozens to hundreds of users to access their applications remotely from a single system, with the very efficient Ctrix ICA display protocol.

One approach is for individual users — the other is for a cost-effective shared application delivery infrastructure.”

(Thanks to The Reptile for sending this in!)
