Are there any easy-to-read primers on application streaming?  What it
does, benefits, advantaged/disadvantages, etc?  My manager was at a user
group on PS4.5 and they touted huge improvements to app streaming.  It
sounds like I may have good use for it, but need to get up to speed on
it since I really know nothing about it.

If the applicaiton is installed locally then the streamed application
will use that. So in your example Adobe Reader would need to be
installed locally on the client. 
However if Adobe reader was not installed locally on the client, you
would need to package Adobe Reader and Outlook into the one single
package and deploy that.

        ni the middle of a new farm build and I am looking into some
streaming with PS 4.5. I have heard conflicting things on this so I hope
some of you who have had your hands on this can share your thoughts.
        If I stream Outlook, what happens when someone tries to open an
attachment like a PDF?  If the reader installed locally (not streamed)
does it use that copy and open the PDF or does the acrobat reader need
to be part of the streamed app as well? 
        What about a hyperlink?  does iexplore have to be part of the
streamed app package or is it smart enought to know explorer is
installed elsewhere and can use it?
        I am building some vm's to test all of this, i am just curious
what soem of you who have been down this road have seen.
