Deployment using Citrix Metaframe
We are think about using City desk for our intranet content managment - however we deploy all our software using Citrix (similar to terminal server) . I've tried the free version on Citrix and it seems OK.
If it works with the starter edition, chances are excellent that it will work with the professional edition.

Citrix Metaframe is a higher-end competitor to Windows Terminal Services.
If the starter edition works, the professional edition will work fine, too... the only difference is a couple of tiny ifdefs.
The way we used Citrix at out place was to run a few PC applications on literally thousands of X-terms. It makes me wonder about licensing in such situation.
It's an interesting question, although from what I understand Citrix is so danged expensive that to use it to avoid buying a few copies of the application software might be self-defeating :) The Fog Creek CityDesk license (don't quote me on this) says "use it like a book" - as long as there is NO possibility of two people using the same copy at the same time, you should be OK. Theoretically I suppose that you could set up a Citrix server with CityDesk installed on it and only allow one person to connect at a time, then have people take turns on it ...
