XenDesktop 4 licensing changes

October 20, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Citrix decided to change the licensing model with the new XenDesktop release to a named user license model, many people where upset and not happy with this.

Brian Madden wrote two articles about that, and guess what, these articles were two of the most-read ones with lots of comments. Click to read the first and second one.

I guess this convinced Citrix to change the licensing model in XenDesktop 4 to a much better one:
