Citrix Future : 64 bit / 32 Bit Windows and XenApp.

Interesting conversations about the future of Windows and XenApp 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------64 vs 32 Bit

From Chris Hahn:

Interesting post on XenApp 32bit vs. 64bit.  Windows 2008 R1 was the last 32bit server OS from MS.  There is no 32bit version of 2008 R2.  So there is a set timeline now where Microsoft will be forcing customers to migrate to 64bit platforms.

Since mainstream support for 2003 is ending next year, clients may be looking at 2008 upgrades next year, which is a good time to look at 64bit vs. 32bit again.

Moshe Silber also shot a note around reminding us that Microsoft Server 2008 R2 is not supported by Citrix XenApp 5.0.

Citrix is committed to ensuring compatibility with the latest Microsoft products.

• Server 2008 R2 is not supported by XenApp 5.0

• Server 2008 R2 will be supported in a future Citrix release.
