[THIN] Re: "Dumb down" desktops

Originally we used DOS to boot straight into our published desktop, but i 
eventually got round to wiping that out and putting 95 on there (our desktops 
are old!) with SheLaunch going straight into the desktop.. But then about a 
month in, users started complaining that their alt-tab keys didnt work - Win95 
picked it up instead of citrix :( They didnt like the idea of using whatever 
the citrix client remaps it to, so i'm sorting out ThinStation now - a nice 
small linux system that can boot into various things (thinstation.sf.net)

When we get round to MPS and I sort out CSG/WI, I'll probably leave the 
desktops as is, and put PNAgent on the Citrix servers to show the icons.. 
Maybe.. :)

Was curious as to what different strategies people have used to "dumb down"
existing desktops? 

 

Does it make sense to wipe out the existing OS and install a 3rd party app
such as Alcatraz (if so what are some suggestions on vendor) to really dumb
them down or should we keep the myriad of old Win98-Win2k machines and just
use PNagent or Program Neighborhood in the startup folder? 

 

Thanks,

 

Chris
