Announce: RDP to VNC

I was under the impression that DOS (and indeed, any non-Win16/32 platform)
could _not_ be used as a client for Terminal Services. If I'm wrong, then
you're right, there's no real advantage (other than configurability,
possibly, and the ability to run *nix apps).

Now I could be dumber than the average bear, but what are the benefits of
using
a linux box to connect to W2K Terminal Server.  Wouldn't you still need a
license for each user to connect to Terminal Server?  Can't you already use
a
dos box to connect to Terminal Server?
