Ronald Grass just posted a really good collection of reference material for XenDesktop:


I don’t know how you feel about all the different sources of information around XenDesktop 5. To me it’s confusing where all the XenDesktop infos are stored and what are the keywords to find the right content. So I decided to create a collection of links to all the stuff I know of, may it be eDocs, Citrix Kits,  HowTos, Whitepapers, KB Articles, Videos, etc.
