Last month Citrix Education launched “Desktop December,” a month-long focus on XenDesktop 5 during which we shared some technical resources, training previews, and even offered up some cool prizes via weekly “Tech Trivia Thursday” contests.  With well over 2,000 unique views for our XenDesktop 5 Training Preview videos and more than 10,000 blog views, we’ll assume you like what you saw throughout the month and will plan to make more resources and events like these available in the future. Thank you for making Desktop December a success, and if you have any suggestions for future content or topics to cover please send them our way!

And the winners are…
The following winners of our “Tech Trivia Thursday” contest correctly answered a weekly trivia question from the XenDesktop 5 Training Preview video series. Each winner received one of four $100 USD gift cards and a chance to win the grand prize – an Apple iPad.

  1. Alexander Ervik Johnsen: Alexander holds several of our Citrix Certified Administrator (CCA) certifications, including XenApp for Windows Server 2008, XenDesktop 4, and XenServer 5, as well as the latest Citrix Certified Enterprise Engineer (CCEE) for Virtualization
  2. David O’Brien: David holds a CCA for XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2008, XenDesktop 4, XenServer 5, and the CCEE for Virtualization
  3. Paul Harford: Paul is a CCA for XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2008, XenDesktop 4, and XenServer 5
  4. Steve Cooper: Steve holds one of our legacy CCA certifications (hint, Steve – you may want to consider updating your certification to further demonstrate your technical knowledge )

Out of the four winners, David O’Brien was chosen as the grand prize winner of an Apple iPad. Congratulations to all of our Desktop December winners!
