That's what I thought, too. I believe MS purchased and branched Metaframe a 
number of years ago and called it Windows Terminal Services. They seem to 
like doing this sort of thing; MS SQL Server is a branch of Sybase, for 
example. I know that the MS Terminal Services product (even the Win2K 
version) has significant differences from Citrix. For one, they use 
different com protocols (Citrix supposedly uses the more efficient one). 
Also, Citrix allows client-side printing.
