I just watched the Linux + GUI episode and it was very exciting. So far everything has just been the server, but users won't be on the server. Up to now nothing has connected to the server. Until this episode. You showed through Xming or XQuartz you can login and launch apps. For me this is very exciting because it shows real world application, but it came short.
Is there a way to automate the logon and application launch so the average user can use it?
Sadly even typing ssh -y firstname.lastname@example.org and then planner & can be a stumbling block. Especially if it's many apps.
Is there a way to map drives to a linux server from a windows machine?
In other words is there a way to make a Linux server look and feel like a Windows server from an end users view point. For example. I have a login. Once logged in I have my apps as icons, network printers, and network drives with security by user name?
I'm sorry if I'm jumping the gun. I'm an old Novell guy and Linux reminds me allot of the way Novel was back in the day.
