Terminal Services, Legacy Applications, and App Virtulization

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
Hello Experts,

My goal is to move 15 users in a small office to a 100% terminal services environment which users would connect to via Wise thin clients with thin OS.

They have some legacy apps that I imagine I am going to have trouble with. What is the best solution for legacy apps in a TS environment? It is application virtulization? What would be a inexpensive application virtualization solution?

 I have not done a TS or RDS deployment before.  Would it be better for me to use server 2003 or 2008R2?  Is is realistic to expect that I can accomplish this 100% terminal services environment?

Thank You,
