I believe that PS4 adds significant gains in general browser image
acceleration and in Flash support over XP. I can't speak to the bandwidth
differences using Flash9/Flex, this seems like an issue that Adobe would
need to address.

Subject: [THIN] Flash on MF XPe 1.0


I have a couple of questions for the list, both relating to Flash. We are
currently making development changes to our internal application that runs
on Citrix through a browser (IE is what we publish) and they are coding much
of it with Adobe Flex, which uses Flash 9 on the server side. During the
bandwidth testing we just completed, there was a 512% increase in bandwidth
utilization between the original non-flash version of the app and the
updated Flash 9/Adobe Flex version of the app. Our server side is MF XPe 1.0
FR3/SP4 on Server 2003 (no SP1). The client side terminals are Wyse 3350,
3360, 3125 and S30 terminals, so we have CE 2.12 to CE.Net and ICA 6.20
through 9.04. My questions are as follows:


1. Are there any tweaks or tunes that will help Flash run better in our
current environment?

2. Are the changes between XP 1.0 and PS 4.0 from a Flash perspective enough
to benefit users and reduce bandwidth? Note that we would likely have to
fork over about $1.5 mill to update our environment as we passed on the SA
and we would also have to upgrade about half of our terminals in order to
get 9.x ICA client support.


Any comments, ideas, suggestions, or alternatives would be greatly
