Citrix runs perfectly fine under 512Kbps, ensuring latency is less than 100ms end-to-end.
I used to do this over VodafoneAU GPRS many moons ago...

Yea come on guys.
Botnet providers would only need maybe 10 bots to successfully bring
down a 100mbit datacenter connection without the bot infected pc
owners finding out.
Or even better, you could brute force a data center server and have
the only bottleneck being both end-points processors, no longer the
slow 6mbit DSL or such.
Think of the positives guys!
But more importantly. I like the fact that I could actually get
employee's to start working properly from home. E.G, they have a
netbook loaded up with just a thin client then they have their work
pc, that they can connect from they're home 100mbit fibre, work
100mbit LAN or 42mbit (Telstra's just about got them out) mobile
internet card. Seriously, when I can have mobile employee's connecting
to a virtualised pc at work, my life becomes a lot easier.
Also, the other positive is the possibility for people to be able to
do home / SoHo offsite backups. House fires, floods and other natural
disasters... Thief... All wouldn't matter as much anymore. Because
your data would be safe...
Just my 2 cents.
