Now that Microsoft has released Windows Server codenamed “Longhorn” Beta 3, I think it is worthwhile to summarize what’s been added and what’s been left out of Terminal Services in this version:
Also at BriForum I heard comments from attendees that they have measured 30% bandwidth reduction when using RDP 6 thanks to the improved built-in compression. Assuming this reduction will be retained or improved when RDP 6.1 is released with “Longhorn”, this should finally dispel the myth of ICA bandwidth superiority.
So what has been left out?
Over the upcoming weeks we will be evaluating the new “Longhorn” Beta and I will be posting the findings.
