+ - Are you using desktop virtualisation?

We moved most of our servers onto VMWare several years ago, and frankly I don't know how I managed without it. Server virtualiation is pretty much the norm now, but it doesn't yet seem to have taken off in the same way on the desktop. I've started looking at VMWare View, Xen Desktop and also Sun Ray's. The Sun Ray demo I was given was very impressive. My question to you all is, are you using (or about to use) desktop virtualisation, and if so, what route did you take? More importantly, was it worth it?

To give an idea of scale, we'd be moving about 100 PC's over, all running Windows 7. The vast majority will be mostly basic office work, nothing too taxing. I like the idea of continuing to use VMWare as it ties in nicely with our server infrastructure, but I suspect the cost may be prohibitive on this small scale."
