Another option for accessing Windows applications from iPads is Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables iPad users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

Ericom‘s AccessNow does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology to be installed on end-user devices – an HTML5 browser is all that is required.

You can choose to run a full Windows desktop or just a specific Windows app, and that desktop or Windows app will appear within a browser tab.

For more info, and to download a demo, visit Ericom's site and look for AccessNow.

Hold on!!! Why would I want to run Windows on my iPad? I don't run it on my Mac (except on those occasions I need to check and see how badly Internet Explorer is mangling my HTML/CSS)... As someone else said, it's akin to pulling a Corvette behind a horse.

Isn't Windows on an iPad much like pulling a Corvette behind a horse?

Spoke with an OnLive representative and they said it will be rolled outside of the US at a later time & date. Even though they allowed me to sign up for an account and no where on their website stated it was US only.

I am waiting on OnLive to release it in the Canadian App store even though I signed up for the free account and cannot try it yet since I do not have a US iTunes account.
