Some consideration required...
I work for a company called ChangeBASE and we deal with lots of clients who are looking to use VDI. In many cases it does make a lot of sense for these clients to use virtualised applications on VDI for the reasons outlined in this article. However we find that in cases where an application contains a plugin for software installed on the base build (IE, Office etc) then it may be difficult virtualising the plugin, as the app installed on the base build won't necessarily "see" the virtualised plugin. You also have to consider the limitations of the virtualisation technology. Eg. If you are using Microsoft's App-V and you application uses DCOM or COM+ then it probably won't work.
