Last week I interviewed Citrix's desktop CTO Harry Labana. Like VMware's desktop CTO Scott Davis (who I interviewed yesterday), Harry's also only been on the job about six months. We talked about Harry's background and how how got to be CTO, and then focused extensively on Citrix's desktop strategy. We talked about how XenDesktop is used today as well as the future of their various technologies, including user personality, BYOPC, Mac clients, data replication, and app virtualization.
From a technical standpoint, since I over-exposed Scott in the last interview, I think I might have over-compensated a bit and under-exposed Harry. It's not too bad really, but to quote Gabe, "I tried like hell to get Harry's hair to show up against the background, but they're just too close." Point taken. Maybe next time I'll try a different color background. Thanks to Gabe again for editing together these camera shots. We also shot this interview with multiple cameras straight-through, except for one quick edit we made to remove me looking into the camera saying, "Is my head showing?" (The answer was 'yes.')
NOTE REGARDING VIDEO PLAYBACK: I think we've fixed the issues with the video playback, so I'm going to delete those comments so new readers can focus on the content-related stuff. But if you still have video playback issues, please post them.
