[UPDATE: Gabe has just published the results of this survey.]
It's been less than a week since Citrix announced that they were changing their XenDesktop licensing from "per concurrent user" to "per user" without a change in price. While they have called it "simpler," just about everyone in the community thinks it sucks. In case you were out last week, here's my original article about XenDesktop 4 (with 39 comments - most complaining about licensing) and my follow-up artlcle which focused specifically on the impact of the licensing change.
Citrix is certainly hearing the outrage, and to that end they've put together an online survey asking customers to share their opinions about what this licensing change means. (Basically they want to know whether people are actually getting screwed by this, or whether it's just a few squeaky wheels on BrianMadden.com. :)
Unfortunately, Citrix just confirmed with us that they will NOT be sharing the results of the survey publicly!?!
So I've created an identical copy of the survey here, the results of which I'll post in a few days. (If you end up taking both surveys, please provide the same answers so we can make our little rip-off as "scientific" as possible.

[UPDATE, WED OCT 14 -- I want to update everyone on the status of Citrix's version of this story. Since I wrote the original article, Citrix has decided that they will publish their own results too. They're claiming that they never "confirmed" that they wouldn't (like I had written), but instead that they just weren't sure and then after we talked to them that they decided they would publish the results. I don't want to get into a "he said/she said" thing with them. Suffice to say they think that I acted irresponsibly in my post claiming they said they wouldn't, and I think they're just trying to save face by putting a spin on it after I made a big deal out of it. Either way, I hope they do end up publishing their results and I'm curious to see how they compare to ours.]
