One of the surprises of VMworld was that Wyse (now "Dell Wyse") is building their own HTML5 RDP. The benefit of HTML5 clients is that you don't have to install anything on your actual client device. You just visit a web page and you're immediately able to access a remote Windows desktop or application. So far Ericom seems to have the most widely available client HTML5 client, (check out my in-depth review from January), though Citrix has recently released one for Chrome and Firefox, and VMware has shown some technology demonstrations but has not yet released anything.
I got a demo of Dell Wyse's HTML5 client from Ken Coley. They're saying that it's a "less than zero" client, or "sub zero." (The project name is "Project Freezer." Tada!!)
Why's Dell Wyse getting into this market? Ken said that it's part of Dell's desire to provide connections to users anywhere, anytime, from any device. Project Freezer will come out in beta soon with the goal of it going on sale by the end of the year.
