Windows 7 to Run on iPad With Citrix Receiver

Citrix is currently working on creating a Citrix Receiver that will enable users to run Windows 7 on the iPad.

If your company has XenDesktop or XenApp you will be happy to know you will be able to use your iPad for real work as well. It turns out the 9.7-inch display on the iPad with a 1024x768 screen resolution works great for a full VDI XenDesktop. Windows applications run unmodified and securely in the data center, and even multiple applications at once. The advancements that were made for the Citrix Receiver for iPhone will carry over to the iPad, however the iPhone restrictions of screen size and small keyboards are overcome with the iPad. It's a beautiful thing!"

Is this something you'd consider? A lot of people have scoffed at the fact that the iPad runs the iPod touch/iPhone OS making it essentially a giant iPod touch. Would Windows 7 change your mind? Let us know in the comments below!

    This is just Remote Desktop, but it definitely works. I can remote desktop just fine while tethering off my G1, why not iPad?
