Basically, it enables users to transfer server-based Linux application sessions between their desktops and their iPads. The client also lets users get at a hosted virtual Linux desktop to use Firefox (which means Flash on the iPad) and OpenOffice. Even with a new level of access to enterprise apps, just how productive can a user really be on the keyboardless, mouseless iPad?
