Help Shape the Future of MetaFrame: Intense Graphics and Profile Management

The Citrix product group is looking for your input as to what they need to focus on in the areas of support for graphics-intense applications (CAD, Imaging, etc.) and profile support.

As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of these kinds of surveys because the results go directly to the product group at Citrix. If you don't share your opinion now then you will lose the opportunity to get your features into the products.

The first survey asks all how how you manage profiles and logon scripts.

It's kind of funny that the first profile question about what type of profile you use only gives the choices of local, mandatory, roaming, or Citrix Consulting Services' Hybrid. Fortunately you have the option further down the page of listing any third party products you use (although Jeroen van de Kamp's Flex Profile Kit is not on the list).

This survey shows us that Citrix is thinking about profile management and user logon management, and it will surely keep the third-party vendors like AppSense, triCerat, and RES on their toes!

The second survey is about how you use (or wish to use) graphics-intensive applications in your Citrix environment.

Most of the questions are about the applications that you'd like to use, how you'd like to use them, and how much bandwidth you have. I think it's say to deduce from the questions that Citrix is weighing the options of whether it's worth building support for high-end graphics into ICA at the expense of bandwidth, and making this option available to customers.

As I said, I highly encourage everyone to take these surveys. They are very short and you can do them both in 2 or 3 minutes.

Feel free to share your thoughts about what you think these surveys mean below.

Is that a prediction? A better prediction I would like to hear would be: "You will get a Porsche very soon". But hey, I guess you have to take what you can get nowadays. Thanks, so do you mean I will win that new graphics card in the prize draw I entered? :) lol
