Photoshop via RDP to Virtualized Desktop? Could it work?

Is Photoshop the type of app that could do well via RDP over a 10 megabit WAN to a virtualized desktop in our data center?

I'd love to get some opinions before I go to the trouble of creating a test instance.

Thanks,
Mike

I would trial Photoshop, and ask the opinion of the user, as to whether performance, and screen updates are acceptable, compared to a physical computer.

We have used Adobe Photoshop in RDP sessions for years, with acceptable results, but where users have wanted to do more with the product we have given them a virtual machine, using PCoIP, or other VDI solutions.

Good to know @Andrew Hancock.

I guess there's no substitute for actually setting up a test win7 vm and installing the 30 day trial and trying it in our environment.

Correct, Test and Pilot, and give it to the End User, and Ask them to use it for a day, with functions and tasks they normally use.
