As part of the media coverage of iForum, Citrix PR has arranged a Q&A session for the press with Mark Templeton (Citrix CEO) and Bob Kruger (Citrix CTO). I'll be taking part in that session, and my question to you is "what would you ask the CEO and CTO of Citrix?" Send me an email or give me a call with your thoughts...

This Q&A session is Tuesday morning, so I'll post the questions and answers then. This time slot will be shared with all the people covering the event, so I'm not sure how many questions I'll personally be able to ask (although those who know me best know that I've never had a problem being heard).

I personally would really like to ask about Citrix's strategy surrounding the future of server-based computing in the .NET world. Bob Kruger wrote a letter about this, but the letter doesn't really say much other than ".NET will be great and we're embracing it! " I would like to hear them articulate Citrix's vision of the .NET world as the world moves off of legacy 32-bit applications. After all, without legacy applications ("legacy" in the context of .NET), there's really no point to MetaFrame Presentation Server.

Of course I'm also curious about the official views of Citrix with regard to Bear Paw, although I'm sure that will be on many peoples' minds at this show and we'll hear plenty.

On Tuesday afternoon I have an interview scheduled with David Manks, Citrix's Senior Director for Product Marketing. The first thing I'll say to him will be to congratulate him on Citrix's new $14M end user-focused ad campaign. It's about time that "Citrix" becomes more of a household name. (That benefits all of us, after all.) I'll talk to David about Citrix's position in the market, and how they're positioning themselves against a wave of lower cost copycat products.

On Wednesday afternoon, I have an interview with Brian Nason, Citrix's director of product management. I'll be looking for Hudson information from Brian, as well as more information about specific products that will drive the future direction of the company. Finally, I'll try to pin down the "on again, off again" commitment to a 64-bit version of MetaFrame and see if that's anything we can realistically expect soon.
