    Good ol'terminal services stuff

    What happened to the days of terminal services, whether MS, Linux or other? Soon companies will be wanting to take back control completely and everyone will be dusting off the cobwebs from their mega servers they always meant to get rid of but actually got shoved in a room somewhere

    I have to maintain a donkey's years old CAG/Server 2008 setup as there's no money for mission critical infrastructure. There's money for management boondoggles though. It's painful sometimes.

    "sometimes"

    I sympathize. Every support/security situation I've been in with Citrix solutions has been a nightmare. "Painful" is an understatement.
