Why is it called something different now?

VMWare has changed the name of their VMWare View client, to VMWare Horizon View. This may be slightly confusing for existing users who have the current VMWare View Download. 

To "assist" in helping you find the right download, VMWare has been redirecting from the existing URL to a new Horizon View URL, which has added to the confusion.
