Citrix was founded in Richardson, Texas, in 1989 by former IBM developer Ed Lacobucci, with $3 million in funding. Following its initial setup and development, Lacobucci moved the company to his former home of Coral Springs, Fla. 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. Lacobucci’s vision was to build OS/2 with multi-user support. IBM was not interested in this idea, so Lacobucci left. Lacobucci was offered a job at Microsoft as chief technical officer of its networking group but turned it down to start his own company.
