Versioning / Product Names

The company Citrix ( makes a number of products – there flagship product is MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0 (MPS). Each of the version is continuations – not a real big change.

Version History
· MetaFrame XP – near end of support lifecycle
· MPS3 – released summer ‘04
· MPS4 – to be released summer ‘05

This begs the big questions….

· Is it worth upgrading from XP to ??? (I guess due to product lifecycle support)
· Is it worth upgrading to MPS3 – or should you just go directly to MPS4 when it is released
· How hard is upgrade
· And of course – wtf does a farm have to do with a computer???
