Re: [LUG] Have I been drinking? Government to drop MS Office...


VNC and rdesktop etc.
I suspect MS would then argue that every Linux machine/user which could do that required a Windows client licence. I'd have no sympathy with that if it was one at a time connection to a desktop and slight sympathy if it was a Terminal Server.

But controlled by sysadmins and documented or sidestepped by eg running a daemon process on the sequestered Windows box as a server to accept files process them and return them that should work and be satisfactory.
