As virtualization.info readers may remember in May 2006, immediately after Microsoft announced acquisition of Softricity, another application virtualization company called Stream Theory claimed a patent infringement from competitors, including Softricity, AppStream and Exent. Such patent infringement may involve Citrix as well, which is working on application virtualization solutions on its own and through recent acquisition of Ardence.
Now, after 10 months, Tadpole Technology, which owns subsidiary Endeavors Technologies and its Stream Theory brand, reached an agreement with both Microsoft and Citrix, allowing software giants to use its patents.
This helps Tadpole difficult economical situation, as Citywire reports.
Meanwhile Stream Theory brand has disappeared from official website, replaced by Endeavors Technologies one.
