Experticty, owner of Gotomypc.com – is bought by Citrix

My spin: I doube this deal will affect any Gotomypc users, however, as Citrix is very much into the market of remote access, owning Experticy is good for Citrix and gives it a reach into smaller markets with the idea, I guess that some might upsell to more expensive and robust Citrix solutions.
News Clip: In its largest acquisition to date, Citrix Systems last week inked a definitive agreement to acquire Expertcity, a leader in providing web based desktop access and help desk services, for US$225 million in cash and stock.
The deal dramatically expands Citrix’s footprint from the server to the desktop access market and into the online help desk and call centre software service market. Expercity’s products include GoToMyPC software service for secure, browser-based access to desktop PCs, and GoToAssist software service, an online help-desk and call-center assistance offering.
