Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop vs. VMware Horizon

Can anyone point me in the direction of a unbiased view / comparison of Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop vs. VMware Horizon please? I need this info urgently.  All the views I can see are very biased and are mainly from Citrix or VMware.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

VD Smackdown compares most if not all VDI solutions

it was published in 2013, but still valid, as the tech has just got both Citrix and VMware, but products are still he same. (It was valled VMware View, then, and over the years changed to Horizon View, and now just Horizon, and version 7.x)

XenApp is really RDS and not a VDI solution, e.g. it's a server based computing solution, e.g. no virtual machines.
