Intro: 


You’ve probably seen all my Mac and iPhone development activity and blog posts, but the RTM of Windows 7 was something I couldn’t just ignore, Windows 7 is huge for Microsoft and it brought back some memories of my old Windows days, back then I created a little gadget called Remote Desktop; I had in mind allowing rapid access to my remote servers and desktops right from the Windows 7’s sidebar.

It’s been well over a year since version 2.1 of the Remote Desktop gadget was released on our former site Frameworkx.com, and this app summed up a bit over 1,000,000 downloads. It was built streamlined and simple as an extension to the Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Client. Now on version 3.0 I simply added support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I decided to share it with our Citrix audience, since we are all about access, and I believe this is can be neat way to connect to your XenApp servers.

Installation:

Remote Desktop Gadget can be downloaded straight to your Windows 7’s sidebar. No extra software or component is required.
