Citrix and Wyse allow you to run Windows on your iPad

If you're familiar with the concept of virtual computing, then you'll appreciate this snippet from ZDNet:
Citrix and Wyse have both released virtual desktop applications for the iPad that let people run Windows applications on Apple's tablet. On Friday, Citrix announced the immediate availability of its Receiver virtual office client and GoToMeeting web conferencing client for the iPad. On the same day, thin-client specialist Wyse separately introduced a version of its PocketCloud app for the same device.
Now, what does this mean? It means that you don't need to wait for a Windows-based tablet as long as you know how to set up a remote PC so that you can run a Windows virtual machine on your iPad.  I'm waiting for Citrix to release GoToMyPC for iPad.
