Horrible flashback:  anybody else ever used/supported WinDD?

Basically it was WinFrame/MetaFrame/NT-terminal-server like for
NT 3.51; we had it at COMCO; all the guys had clients on their
SGI machines so they could log into the NT server (a P166MMX!
it did a great job!) and run Word and Excel, etc.
