re: VMware Buys Desktone For Cloud-Delivered Virtual Desktops
If VMware is willing to cannabalize its own premises-based VDI business by selling a service option, I'm guessing its premises VDI business wasn't a roaring success. I'm also guessing that Desktone's own virtualize infrastructure isn't VMware's. So VMware must see a pretty big market for desktop as a service.

Citrix Systems a week ago adjusted third quarter quidance downward from $730-$740 million to $710-$712 million. Desktone specifically attempts to compete with Citrix. Has Desktone been hurting its revenues and that's why VMware bought it?
