lol, I want to do some app and maybe VM hosting.
Looking into Citrix XenApp
and Sun Secure Global Desktop
for hosting Windows apps for SMB's seamlessly. So far, I like Sun's solution better because it runs in OpenSolaris and uses RDP so no TS licenses are required, and it's less expensive per user, but I'll need to benchmark and test both of them extensively. Ultimately, of course, I'd like to convince clients to move away from Windows, but that's going to be difficult, so I need to accommodate them in the meantime. At least this way, they can run their Windows apps from a Linux desktop.
Imagine how quick you could transcode a movie on a system like that, though.
