RE: [K12OSN] alternative remote desktop solution



I've just tried the Demo version on an xp sp2 domain vmware virtual
machine. Worked very well.

The way of using it I have been considering is to install a fast machine
with linux probably fedora and install the free vmware server. Then run
1 or more virtual machines with xpunlimited installs on. As I see it the
advantage of this is I can set the virtual machine to roll back to a
fixed snapshot each time it reboots. Thus no one can bust it, or if they
do it only needs the virtual machine restarting.

On the client side I already use 2xThinClientServer which allows
connection to rdp or nx so I could specify which users get a windows
desktop and which get my existing linux one.

Any thoughts anyone?

Just tried XPUnlimited's beta package and it didn't work on Windows XP
SP2
with all the latest patches. Test computer was in a workgroup and fast
user switching was on. MS must of did something with the updated
patches.
