  • Development of VMware fusion.
  • Transition from product management to VP, how has that gone for you?
  • The evolution of VMware’s EUC side, particularly in the last 36 months.
  • Developing a great VDI client for smart phones, how VMware nailed the use case.
  • Blast extreme, congrats on the new protocol, whats the use case and where does it fit?
  • Lets talk PCOIP vs Blast, where is the future of VMware’s EUC story?
  • Of all the VMware projects Pat has been evolved it, we talk about his favourite projects.
  • GPU and horizon has been a big push, why, where and how?
  • Is EUC getting enough focus at VMworld?
  • Citrix’s marketing has been attacking hard at Synergy and Summit, what does that tell you?
  • Crystal ball time, whats next and where is the market going?
  • IoT, the good, bad and downright crazy.
