Microsoft outlined improvements that make it easier to access desktop virtualization. A couple of features I like:

"Windows XP Mode no longer requires hardware virtualization technology. This change simplifies the experience by making virtualization more accessible to many more PCs for small and midsize businesses wanting to migrate to Windows 7 Professional or higher editions, while still running Windows XP-based productivity applications."

"Two new features coming in Windows Server 2008 R2 service pack 1. Microsoft Dynamic Memory will allow customers to adjust memory of a guest virtual machine on demand to maximize server hardware use. Microsoft RemoteFX will enable users of virtual desktops and applications to receive a rich 3-D, multimedia experience while accessing information remotely."

"New technology agreement with Citrix Systems. The companies will work together to enable the high-definition HDX technology in Citrix XenDesktop to enhance and extend the capabilities of the Microsoft RemoteFX platform."

My biggest gripe with all this news is the way MS changes their licensing models only when they have a product to compete with the competition.
Prior to a MS product they have made it very hard to made use of virtual desktops cost effectively, and now to coincide with this latest Citrix partnership they change their licensing rules. Typical.
