Citrix apparently *really* needs to do a better job marketing.  I  try 
to stay reasonably on top of this stuff, but am pretty much fully
unaware of their services.

It's not just them:  proprietary tech companies in general do a
piss-poor job of pimping their goods.  It's a bit like a more obscure
area of highly tuned academic study.  If you've invested a decade or two
grokking the stuff, it's self-evident.  If you haven't, you'll never
understand.  And most of the value seems to be "we've got you locked in,
pay $$ and sign on the dotted line".

How about a nice, basic introduction to what Citrix does?
