Hi ,


I have  been having a look at application virtualisation in XenApp 5 and
have tested a few apps streamed to desktops just to get a feel for the



My next step is to move our XenApp infrastructure to XenApp 6.5 on 2008
R2,  we have a pretty mixed environment consisting of Vista and W7 Pc's
lots of thin terminals.


My real question really is anyone installing applications directly onto
XenApp or indeed desktops anymore or is it all virtual apps.


Or is it only with the experience with lots of  trial and error were you
can fully get to grips with this.


I intend to investigate XenDesktop as well but I may have to push ahead
with the 6.5 roll out to facilitate Office 2010.


Any particular direction I should be taking ? We don't have 100's of
apps maybe 25 or so and they are mainly commercial and not custom in
house apps.
