Submission + - Citrix XenServer now defective by design (

Darby writes: Looks like Citrix is jumping on the violate existing agreements by adding defective by design bandwagon. If you want to upgrade to any newer versions, they are now demanding that you run a malware server the sole purpose of which is to disable your infrastructure if it determines that it should. I mean it's bad enough when Microsoft pulls their sleazy activation scams, but at least they pay for their own servers. Citrix expects to pass that cost of business on to their paying customers and force you to use your resources to run their server for them. Utterly unethical audacity.
