A new website called CitrixSucks.net popped up last week. Ordinarily this would be no big deal. However, the editors of that site are making some pretty bold claims about Citrix's iForum plans. If these claims come true (which we'll know in 72 hours), this will certainly be a site to watch. (Of course Citrix doen't take too kindly to other people using their trademarks, so I would imagine it won't be too long before this site disappears.)
Specically, CitrixSucks.net is claiming that:
- Citrix will announce and make available Presentation Server 4 for attendees. This will be a technical pre-release, and not supported as a production build, but will be PS4.
- Citrix will announce a new strategy for the way they handle feature releases and service packs. Feature releases will disappear, replaced entirely by version upgrades.
- Citrix will rename the product to resell it as a completely new release.
- Citrix will change their hotfix and patch rollup methodology. In addition to their random patches, they'll release roll-up patches every quarter that have more emphasis on change control. They will incorporate all patches released that quarter, and also include explicit information as to what hotfixes are replaced by newer versions.
Like I said, I have no idea if this information is any good, but we'll find out soon enough. CitrixSucks.net has been registered via an anonymous proxy registrar and is on a server hosted by Bellsouth.net. I found out about it via an anonymous email from the proprietor.
