In all fairness, those that may wish to put security solutions in place may need a way to justify the increased cost of additional security to the larger shareholders, who often can't see the forest for the trees. You'd think those shareholders would just invest in IT/security companies...

I've been using AirWatch for some years now, and it works great. There's nothing "cloud" about my environment either... I hope this isn't the beginning of the end, though. With them leveraging a piece of AirWatch for something else, I hope this isn't a precursor to the discombobulation of the MDM suite...

I use the Citrix receiver, since the Windows App Store version doesn't start up stuff (like the Citrix Connection center) when you log into your PC that disables window effects/themes. It also doesn't throw annoying icons in your start menu and on your desktop for remote apps. Great for the PC you only occasionally connect to Citrix with. I also use a cool Kanji lookup app on my convertible ultrabook. I have a few games I've bought through it, but it's pretty minimal.

I fully expected plenty of ass-hattery to come from this acquisition. I wasn't aware, however, that would have any outcome from this. I don't know why I didn't see it coming, with them being under the same corporate entity. I can't wait to see what other crap comes down the pipe.

Yes. Often times in less critical systems, it happens. If it's critical, though, or has any privileged accounts that can access critical stuff, it definitely keeps it. Let me tell you, as nice as the Windows Firewall interface is in Server 2008 and above, it can be a painstaking endeavor to find all the exceptions you need. Then there's always the support guy asking "Umm... why come... why come I can't ping this? It's broke. Fix it."

If you're on Windows, using the built-in Microsoft IME with a Japanese keyboard allows me to use the hardware keys to switch input modes and/or use the direct kana input. I don't think many people use the direct kana entry, though. Even without a Japanese keyboard, you can use Alt+Shift to switch input methods, and Alt+tilde(~) to switch from direct entry to IME entry. Still kinda blows, though.

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be. Go back to work.
