    any Idea about the new rdp running on linux, OS or win2000/XP(pre sp3)
    Im sure on the itidiots show it was mentioned that it will only work on XP SP3 or Vista.

    It has assigned me with 50 MAK validations. So I don't really know how it works it out, as I'm only licensed for 5 copies of Windows Server.

    Must admit Ive also enjoyed it, yes its Vistaised but that will do us good and get us used to that quicker and sooner so we feel happy with Vista soon Its only like XP was all over Server 2003, its the same "big" change as it were and no doubt we will soon be used to it.

    Surely thats 10 activations per key then if you have 5 Licences and 50 goes.

    That's very true!

    I think with NAP and other cool things that can happen between Vista and 2008 Server it will make it more compelling for businesses to upgrade. At the moment I think Microsoft have put themselves in an extremely strong position again in the server market. I wish Apple would take a leaf out of their book as far as Server development goes!!

    When you first install Terminal Services as a role it asks you if you wish to use Network Level Authentication or not. I am pretty sure that this means that you can only use the old style TS if you choose not to.

    One of the things I am going to be investigating is the use of NAP + TS to publish applications for users to use at home, rather than using a VPN, as this would take forever and a day to organise...

    I dont like network drives - they dont appear to other programs and only show up in my computer (eg I am trying to install a SIMS client to be used within terminal services, which requires an S: drive). SIMS and other applications cannot see this
