Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

It's eighteen months since Psion signed a deal with Citrix to produce a native EPOC version of the ICA client. The word from Symbian, as all Psion's software development now is, is not to expect anything too soon. Or ever. "We've talked to our biggest customers, and they're not interested," said a Psion-person on Monday. "There's very little demand for it on the Series 5." Coincidentally, Symbian's lone footsoldier in the US dropped in for talks with SCO at the Unix vendor's annual jamboree at Santa Cruz last week for not-so-secret discussions to produce a native Tarantella client. The coy pair couldn't have chosen a more huggamugga spot for this assignation:...er, right in front of the capuccino stall in the journalists' interview lounge at the press centre. Each time a friend of The Register walked past,the plotters fell into a silence, which became a protracted hush after the real nature of the venue was explained. But The Register notes that at least Symbian is being realistic about the performance of its own forthcoming JVM: Tarantella is supposed to work with bona fide JVMs on any client, remember, and the only platform SCO has felt obliged to write a native version for performance reasons has been Windows 3.11.
