I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on MBA w/ 128 SSD. My office is PC based and use Citrix for remote access. I saw on their site, a MAC client and wanted to know if anyone here has and/or does use it and how it works. I'd rather use the MAC client (assuming it works) than Parallel or boot camp. Thanks in advance

I work for a company who specialises in citrix installs and use the Mac Client all the time. You install it like any other Mac application and inside the folder in applications you have a citrix client editor which you can use to setup your connections.

It works, but it's slower in my experience. I also had to go out of my way to get a certificate that they didn't include with the OS X package (after I spent time googling a random error to discover it was a certificate I needed) :rolleyes:

I run Citrix often for about 8-10 hours a day and will do so more often when I telecommute full time. I have not noticed anything odd with it, but I do run it from Firefox as it seems to handle the files easier. I was going to install it on my air tonight as I'll need it while I travel after the holidays.
