Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Webcast There are few topics in the IT industry that are more divisive than the option of putting anything other than Windows on the corporate desktop.

Too often opinions are focused on either transforming the entire desktop estate to Linux in a major upheaval or keeping Linux out completely.Yet when we look at how we buy hardware for business it's not a one size fits all approach. Instead it's common to buy different specifications and capabilities to suit different business needs.

So shouldn’t be the same when considering desktop operating systems?

On May 16th The Register’s Tim Phillips is your host for the live Regcast ‘The other enterprise desktop:Because Windows can’t be everything to everyone ’.He’s joined by Freeform Dynamic’s Andrew Buss, Boris Devouge and Paul Holt from Canonical to discuss how we can analyse:

  • The desktop user needs
  • Segment workgroups
  • Targeting deployments to achieve both business value and user acceptance

We want to hear your experiences and issues so join in our on-going Q&A during the event. Watch all this live for free by registering here.
