    i remember reading about upcoming citrix support. is this totally different? separate but equal? are they competitors? how is this helpful to a business user? can consumers use this vs gotomypc?
    ...This programming stuff is actually addictive but really hard :/

    I think in the future we are less likely to buy such high end PC’s with huge CPUs. I read in an article that around 70 million virtual desktops units have already sold. What do you think,do you think virtual desktop computing will take over traditional desktops in near future?

    It's a big technology circle, back in the 60s it was all mainframes and dumb terminals. Then unix workstations became the cheaper option before dumb X-Terminals took over for a while in the 80s & 90s. In the 00's PCs became so powerful and cheap that they became the preferred option and now we are moving to virtual PCs in the cloud again.

    In other words, yes, this will happen but then something else will pull the pendulum back the other way for a while. It all comes down to the balance of how fast/reliable your data connection is vs how fast your local CPU is. Big organisations like to maintain things centrally if they can and so having a central farm of virtual machines and dumb terminals on desks is very attractive if the price/performance equation works out ok.

    That said, unless really fast and cheap internet connections become the norm I doubt cloud based virtual machines will ever be ubiquitous for home users. I'm actually doing something similar today as I work from home using a remote desktop over a VPN over a 2Mb ADSL connection. It's workable but a bit clunky and I wouldn't consider it for my everyday computing needs.
