Corrections to Windows Server 2008 Upgrade Article

Debra Littlejohn Shinder posted an interesting article at TechRepublic listing 10 things to consider when making a Windows Server 2008 upgrade decision. As reason #7 to upgrade the article lists enhancements to Windows Terminal Services. Terminal Services in Windows Server 2008 have indeed been significantly enhanced, but unfortunately this section of the article contains some significant omissions and inaccuracies:

  1. The article mentions the new Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) version 6.0 and states that it is included in both Vista and Server 2008. RDC 6.0 is actually already available for XP as well. This is significant because it means you do not have to upgrade all clients to Vista in order to access all the new Terminal Services features. Moreover, Server 2008 will include RDC 6.1, which will also be made available Vista and XP. Some new features require upgrading to 6.1.
  2. The article describes improvements to the user experience, such as higher resolution and multi-monitor spanning. It’s important to note that these two features are actually available for Windows Server 2003 as well, if you use RDC 6.0 on the client side.
  3. The article neglects to mention some of the most significant usability enhancements such as TS RemoteApp and TS Getway.

Since the release of Windows Server 2008 is rapidly approaching I encourage you to download and test Windows Server 2008 RC0. Also if you are wandering if Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services are good enough for you as a stand-alone solution or if you still require an add-on product such as Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect or Citrix, check out this post.
