eWEEK Labs Walk-through: Windows Server 2008 - RemoteApp
RemoteApp enables administrators to publish individual applications, as opposed to remote desktop sessions. I tested out RemoteApp with the Firefox Web browser, the GIMP image editing application and VMware's Virtual Infrastructure client. From a Windows XP or Windows Vista client, these applications appeared as if running locally, complete with resizable windows.
A tour through Windows Server 2008 shows the server operating system to be leaner and more secure than ever before.
