Hi,

The tools to implement are available, the problem is the quality of the
solution. 
What you suggested is the same as considering each application as a
VNCServer and connecting to them all at once. 
Without a proper caching and manager window layer that needs to exist on the
client side (this is the hell part btw) this solotion would actully waste
more CPU and network then the current one.

Why not, for the server, for the client it's no problem for sure. Is it not
possible to capture the image from within a single window within MS-Windows?
I think it is, since Alt-PrintScreen does the same thing. Monitoring window
creation/deletion must be possible too.
