Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Mini Poll Well, the shareholders succumbed in the end, and BEA is now to be part of the mighty machine that is Oracle (see here if you missed the news). This probably didn't come as that much of a surprise to the pundits, and the BEA shareholders must obviously think they're getting a good deal. Beyond the wheeling, dealing and competitive shenanigans, though, we'd be interested in your views of how the move is likely to impact those that matter the most – the customers.

If you have an opinion on this, we’d love to hear your view in the poll below:
