Hi, this isn't a tech question per say but a general question about your experience.

In a W2012 environment, I have users connecting to a TS server.  These users aren't the brightest bunch so giving them the new interface and killing the Start Menu is just going to confuse them.  There are several apps to use to bring the start menu back, but then, any GPO to customize or lockdown the start menu are useless.

Also, so far, all the apps I tried couldn't be customized on a 'domain' level, so for each session you have to "right click - settings - customize" etc etc.  Not very scalable.

Any recommendation ?
