Citrix/TS alternatives

Been running Citrix with a few clients and have some others that want to get into the game.  The current road block is the licensing costs for the TS CALs as you require 1 CAL per named user in your company, plus the per user cost of your Citrix CALs, even though only 10 out of a 50 user organization will connect remotely and no I don't want to use RDP back to office desktops as some of these remote users do not have desks in the office or are contracted employees.

Has anyone looked at alternatives to Citrix and Terminal server?  

I am interested in solutions that do not require the need of Terminal server licenses but allow the presentation of apps like Citrix XenApp.

@zach2001, thanks I like this so far and pricing is available up front with out me having to register.

@Sunil, do you have an idea of what their MSRP is for these products you suggested?  I hate having to register "just" to get pricing from a company :)

All good options but I guess M$ has their CAL licensing locked down so tight there is no way around it LOL
