VMware announces VMWare Horizon Client for Windows 10
VMware has finally released a universal app for Windows 10 PC and mobile devices with its version of VMware Horizon Client. The app enables Windows users who use VMware Horizon 7 for their business to run virtual desktop applications on all devices running Windows 10.
