Spent the last two days trying to figure out 2008r2 server and the remote desktop thing. As far as I am concerned, I can use remote desktop on any machine in the world. I dont need 2008r2 for this. This is where I get confused as to what microsoft is actually doing. I have VMWare 4.1 in a test environment and that is fine for server consolidation. But from what I understand is that 2008r2 with hyper v and remote desktop will enable me to "boot from" the xp image I created and assigned to a user in ADDS. Not to run Win7 and connect to a XP VM. Maybe I am thinking that it should be like pxe or thin clients.

Well, I hope someone can clear this up for me. Virtual desktops should work the same way a roaming profile does. Thanks in advance.
