After the announce of some months ago, VMware Horizon View 6 has been released for general availability (GA). The name has also sligtly changed in VMware Horizon (with View) 6.0, considering that the previous Horizon Suite is no more avilable.

Editions are also little different: Horizon 6 (with View) is sold in three editions, VMware Horizon™ View™ Standard Edition, VMware Horizon™ Advanced Edition, and VMware Horizon™ Enterprise Edition.

There are also some competitor comparisons:

And also some comments of this product:

My personal comment was:

 “End user computing is, and will remain probably for a long time, a fragmented world with different access devices, PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet, and different technical solutions, local OS, VDI, application virtualization, session virtualization, user state virtualization, due to the different customers’ needs. Horizon 6.0 could now extend the unified access from any device to not only desktops but also to applications with a seamless access and also an application catalog, which could integrate XenApp applications, ThinApp applications and several mainstream SaaS (like Office 365) all with one login and the same consistent experience.”
