Regards, Mike Semon -----Original Message----- From: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Brian Madden Sent: Thursday, January 22, 2004 7:41 AM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] New Book from Ron Oglesby and Brian Madden Hello All, As many of you know, Ron and I have been working on a book together for almost a year now. (In fact, a lot of people on this list helped out with this book.) Well, we're happy to announce that it's finally done and available now from Amazon.com. The book is "Terminal Services for Microsoft Windows Server 2003: Advanced Technical Design Guide." It's similar to the two Citrix books I've done in the past, except this book focuses completely on Terminal Server. It's a technical design guide, so it shows you how the stuff works and what it takes to design a solid system. Oh, and it's not approved or authorized by Microsoft, so we show you how stuff /really/ works. J We wrote this book since the new and improved features of Terminal Server in Windows 2003 caused a lot of people to choose to use Terminal Server all by itself without using MetaFrame at all. People always asked us, "Do I need Citrix?" or "Can Terminal Server 2003 really do xxx?" You can find out in this book. We also cover all the strategies for using the third party tools. Here's a link to get the book from Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0971151040/brianmadden-20 Also, we made the printing chapter of the book available as a free download a few months ago. In case you missed it: http://www.brianmadden.com/books/0971151040/TS2003BookPreview.zip Finally, I still have the paper I wrote with Gabe Knuth a few months ago comparing Citrix, Terminal Server, New Moon, Jetro, and DAT: http://www.brianmadden.com/reviews/SBC_Software_Roundup.htm Thanks, Brian Brian Madden brian@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx +1.202.302.3657 Visit www.brianmadden.com for in-depth Citrix, Terminal Server, and server-based computing news and analysis, white papers, downloadable videos, and product reviews.
