I administrate Windows 2000 network and Citrix Medaframe XP.  Looking at
CO$T$ and maintenance associated with Citrix I'm considering scrapping
Citrix and going with a Terminal services RDP environment. All my clients
are WinXP and Wyse terminals (RDP).  The only down side I know is the load
balancing Citrix can do, and Terminal services cannot.   What do you think
the advantages and disadvantages are between RDP & ICA? 
Is Terminal services as functional as Citrix?

Thanks in advance
