I can tell you that the Citrix clients for Linux work very well, Including
the optional mapping of client drives and printers.

Subject: [SLUG] accessing MS desktops from Linux

One of my clients is planning to upgrade their network, and I'm pricing MS
(Terminal services + a whole n/w of new desktops + licenses - ouch). What
I want to do is put Linux on all the old desktops, and have graphical
access to 1 windows machine - what can I run on Linux that will do this?
I know I can use VNC, but it's a bit clunky, especially since the 1
Windows app that the users need to access is their main app (which they
use all day).
Anyone had experience with the Citrix ICA Client running on Linux? It
Any other hints as to what I could use?
