VMware has introduced the Preview of a View Client for Windows Store. The client will run in the tiles view of Windows RT and Windows 8. It comes with features like Touch Pointer, Zoom and Snap (Check the VMware Blog for the details) but the preview has also a few limitation: Only RDP connections in the preview and no PCoIP yet, no smart card authentication support.
The current VMware View Client in version 5.2 does run in Windows 8 desktop mode. VMware recommends that if you’re using a full Windows 8 client, not Windows RT, you should use the existing View client for maximum functionality.
