VMware also recently hired ex-Citrite Phil Montgomery for a senior role in their end-user computing group.

So it looks like they're assembling a great team with actual desktop experience. Now we just have to see if that experience translates into products. For VMware, the transition away from Windows desktops to cloud & SaaS apps can't come fast enough... (although hopefully Phil & Brian can help the company shape-up their Windows-based desktop products too.)

Thanks for the mention Brian - I'm really excited about joining VMware - I'm managing Product Management for VMware View and the personal products.  Great team and great company with a huge opportunity to make a difference.


Looking forward to talking more and getting feedback from you and your readers.

Hmmm. Interesting week. Smart people joining VMware and smart people leaving Citrix. Citrix needs better competition. VMWare are nowhere in the desktop, hoping that changes.

Brian - I agree - this is great news for VMware.   Couldn't be more excited to have both Phil and Brian G joining the team!  Noah

I have to agree with "Da Detective" on this one. Truly an interesting week and i agree that VMware is hiring all the right talent.


Losing Harry to AppSense is a bummer for Citrix but i still think there are some very talented folks at Citrix still.


@appdetective: you see what happens when you make good comments :) we tend to agree :)
