Very cool Steve. You and Joe get all the good projects :) But wouldn't
something like a commercial broker (http://www.leostream.com/) do this for
you? Then you don't have to worry about the on-going support and
maintenance of your app, which can be a legal nightmare. And I guess the
new Citrix Desktop Broker being publicly released this month will do as
well. I'm just intrigued to know what motivated you to write your own?

 Kind regards,

One of the interesting things we did recently was create a Citrix solution
with custom software that uses the published application functionality of
Citrix as a front end to a bank of virtual machines. In this scenario, the
software requires itâs own XP workstation so we wrote custom software that
serves up virtual machines to end users on demand. It tracks sessions in
use and hands out available VMâs as needed. It also load balances across
physical host machines.

Subject: [THIN] Looking for your Original/Innovative uses for Citrix for a
presentation I am doing

Hi all
I am going to be doing a presentation at CSEIT prior to iForum on Getting
the most of Citrix/Using Citrix across your organization.

I am looking for additional ideas from people on how they have come up with
innovative/original new ways to save time and use Citrix in your

I have things like ways of publishing MMC's of AD users, Rdesktops and
Exchange Control Panel,  Publishing Printers Folder, Web interace mods,
CSG/WI usage, etc.  Just looking for some other great things people are
doing with Citrix Products that they think others may not of thought of
that other companies could use.  I'll make the whole presentation available
after CSEIT to the list.

Please post to the list as this could be a great thread also. Include
registry hacks, text you used to publish the item, etc. I'll try and give
credit where credit is due.
