Awesome, I can't wait.  I can't believe how nicely local devices and sound on my new
system work.  If you guys are half as successful in tackling local apps along with the
speed/scalability it should be great.  I have been fairly impressed with the speed on my
system just the way it is, faster will be great, but at this point my clients boot in
about 1 min 20 seconds which isn't all that bad compared to full workstations.  And with
the LDM_DIRECTX running my video is flawless at smaller resolutions, still a little
choppy at larger or full screen, but it is a thin client so I expect this.

Excellent work guys, you are making my job much easier :-)
