Citrix Web Interface vs. StoreFront 2.5

Great article by Thomas Koetzing comparing Web Interface 5.4 with Storefront 2.5 

With XenApp 7.5 / XenDesktop 7.5 the support for WI was extended BUT no further development is done!

StoreFront has really cached up with Web Interface features but nevertheless the adoption is on a slow rate. My biggest problem is stability and performance and hopefully has improved with the latest release.
