Citrix is definitely expensive, but many IT shops have found it to be
highly cost effective. That's why they were one of the few companies
that did fairly well during the downturn in 2001-2003 because companies
bought their stuff to save money. I used to work for Citrix, so I met
some customers with some fairly compelling stories, despite the fact
that Citrix generally pleases the IS/IT staff to no end, and generally
makes things somewhat less flexible for the end users. I'm not a huge
fan of Metaframe, but they definitely fill a niche that's extremely
helpful at times.

Check out for further information.

Any cost figures?  As that's a large part of the equation here.

The neat thing about WTS is that it's fast and simple, and for the user
who only needs access to a couple of legacy apps, it works pretty well.
