        Verizon out here uses a Citrix plugin for inputing phone
requests from the corporate/Government side and they push a whole
NT/2000 desktop over the line to the remote computer, which also must
be running NT at least. It's so slow that most of the time it
appears to be locked up. Our LAN is no slouch either, as we stream
over it to the 'net a couple of times a week.
