I have one word for the work at home group: KIDS.I would rather work at my desk than work from home. It's just easier with less distractions and I can listen to my music or watch my movies as loud as I want without waking people up. Heck, even on holidays when I have the night off I still go into work with some pizza and Netflix, the conference rooms are 100x better than any movie theater I've ever been to.
How we do it. My new laptop Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 just came in today and I am using it right now and in a few seconds I have everything like I never left it. It is so great too when you are on the go and work from 3 laptops and a desktop on a daily basis.We started using VDIs at work which is much much better than lugging around a work laptop and easier than logging into the VPN. I've got the Citrix Receiver app on my tablet so I can even use that if I don't want to power up my home laptop.
It is not there, definitely. I recently tried even the most expensive solutions (it would be nice to use VDI for 3D CAD applications), but performance is barely sufficient, at best, and stability is lower than a non-virtualized setup. Citrix seems to have the edge, anyway.Any suggestions for VDIs with decent GPU support? Or is the tech not there yet?
