Indeed, - “Over tweaking complicates the environment more than it needs

Set it up, test and measure – if that’s acceptable – move on:

Remember, the RDS team put a lot of effort into 2008R2 and 2k8R2 in general
has a lot of improvements – you’ve a completely new platform, don’t repeat
the 5 monkey story.

Which one?  I would be careful of the Win 2003/XA 5 tweaks as much has
changed. Things like disabling the Firewall services (at the services
layer, not via policy) will cause all kinds of problems.  Not just with
RDS, but things like print and clusters too.

Today, increasing user density isn't as important as it once was.  Over
tweaking complicates the environment more than it needs too.  There is
something to be said about keeping it simple. Invest that time into
User environment management, policy management and something like App-V.

I'm seeing quite a few people advocating using tweaks we did in the Windows
2003 / XenApp 5.0 world.

The lists thoughts and suggestions would be most appreciated.
