VMware to put Propero to good use?

There's some buzz in the VDI channels about how VMware is close to releasing a beta version of the connection broker they aquired with the purchase of Propero. Not much else is known at this point, but you can read my article about the VMware-Propero acquisition to get a little more background.

If you have some interest in the beta program, you can send an email to vdi-survey@vmware.com.

Following the acquisition, rumor has it VMware was shocked by the unusability of the product and its shortcomings. They had to rewrite most of it.  The original broker was Linux-based.  The new one is designed as a Windows service.

Propero's original broker was written in Java and ran on top of jboss, so even if they are switching OS it's not necessarily as huge a leap as you say. I find it hard to believe VMware bought a product and was then "shocked" at its shortcomings - care to be more specific on "rumor has it"?

 If it is going to run on Windows, will it continue to also run on Linux or come as a Virtual Appliance? A VMware created Virtual Appliance for smaller setups would be great.

I also find that hard to believe. Propero has been around since [at least] 2002 and their technology works. The more relevant question is: Will VMWare allow workSpace to continue supporting Terminal Services and Citrix? Or will they kill that functionality.
