[THIN] Remote access and developers

Apologies if this is a duplicate.  I had an issue with my email account
earlier.

How is everyone handling remote access for their developers?  Citrix has
served us really well for the past 10 years and we will add our 10,000th
concurrent user this year, but we have never been able to get the developers
to play nicely in the Citrix world.  They all want (need?) their own
desktops and have always been able to justify elevated permissions.  I would
love to get them in Citrix, but for some apps that may be forcing a square
peg in a round hole.  We are getting ready to do some testing with a couple
VDI solutions, but it is way too early to tell if that will work for them
and I don't think we can bring up an environment fast enough to support
hundreds of remote developers.

There is always the tried and true vpn solution, but since implementing
wi/csg years ago we have been eliminating vpn for client use and normally
just use it for network to network connectivity these days.

Here is a subset of some of the applications we have yet to host via Citrix
today, but some of this may be because we never tried.

Dreamweaver
Photoshop
SeeBeyond
Visual Studio .Net
Toad

Thanks in advance everyone.
