CITRIX IS IN GENERAL USED IN COMBINATION WITH TERMINAL SERVERS, MEANING ALL
CLIENTS START THEIR PROGRAMS CENTRALLY ON A SERVER. THUS SOME MORE USERS

NORMALLY, WHEN WORKING WITH A TERMINAL SERVER, ALL PRORGRAMS, DATA, ETC. IS
KEPT CENTRALLY ON THE SERVER. THIS ALSO APPLIES, THAT LOOKING AT SUBVERSION
LOCAL WORKING COPIES ARE MIGHT BE PERMITTED, BUT I AM NOT SURE. JUST WANTED
TO KNOW IF ANY EXPERIENCE, OR EVEN BETTER A HOW TO KIT EXISTS.
