VMware Horizon View vs Citrix XenApp: which is the better product and why?

We are presently using Citrix XenApp 7.15 LTSR and are looking for an alternative. 

Is VMware Horizon View a solid product to review and eventually purchase? Why?

I think VMware Horizon View is a very solid product. 


I think it is the most mature product on the whole spectrum. All virtual desktop environments require tuning for performance. Depending on the size of the company you don't need 1/10 of the bells & whistles that the vendors include. For example, I have a small environment - 70 employees. I don't use instant clones, personas, their analysis tools, ... Not only are they expensive (the tools) they overly complicate a complicated process. KISS. 


I have honed down the environment to what is just needed. Most of the industry will tell you otherwise. And I do all this as a one-man IT department.
