Thanks for chiming in, Brad.
Since you did, have another question or two if you don't mind.
I currently remote in from my iPad to a VPN which requires a Citrix Receiver client for access (my day job). From what I've read, Citrix Receiver for the Surface Pro requires a proprietary Citrix front end on the remote server and doesn't work the way Citrix Receiver works for other platforms. Do you know if that is indeed the case, and if so, are you aware of any VPN clients that behave on the Surface like Citrix Receiver for Windows 7 desktops, allowing virtualization of local printers in particular? Biggest drawback with Citrix Receiver on the iPad is not being able to print to local network printers, which is what has prompted my interest in the Surface as a potential replacement for my first gen iPad. Not looking like a promising option so far.
Sorry to be a little OT. Thanks in advance!
