This is a video of a Raspberry Pi (Retail Model B May2012), accessing a Microsoft Windows 7 virtual desktop session using Citrix XenDesktop 5.6 on a VMware ESXi 5 hypervisor (VDI style).

Sequence of events is as follows:
1. logon to the RPi with default account, then start the LXDE desktop.
2. Run the IceWeasel (Firefox) web browser which has a home page set to a Citrix Web Interface server.
3. Logon to the WI and start the XenDesktop session to a published virtual machine in this case a Win7 x86 VM part of a pooled machine catalog using personal vDisks.
4. Launch a few Win32 apps in Win7 then logout and close the browser.

Note the RPi was using the Debian Squeeze distro and was preloaded/configured with the Citrix Reciever and IceWeasel. Please also note that Windows 7 is not running locally on the RPi, its the Citrix Reciever presenting it. This is merely a demonstration of what is possible...
