Install the Citrix ICA client in Ubuntu
Citrix was founded in 1989 by former IBM developer Ed Iacobucci in Richardson, Texas with $3 million in funding. Iacobucci quickly moved the company to Coral Springs, Florida since he lived there when he had worked at IBM.
Citrix was originally named Citrus but changed its name after an existing company claimed trademark rights. The Citrix name is a portmanteau of Citrus and UNIX.
Many of the original founding members had participated in the IBM OS/2 project. Iacobucci’s vision was to build OS/2 with multi-user support. IBM was not interested in this idea so Iacobucci left. Iacobucci was offered a job at Microsoft as chief technical officer of its networking group but turned it down to start his own company.
