I couldn't see that well in the demo, but does the nSuite Remote only display in a browser?  Can you have a seamless window of the desktop?


nSuite is just a connection broker, so seamless windows, etc., is dictated by the capabilities of whatever back-end system you're connecting too.

So in the "Corporate" version (the inside the firewall edition), the nSuite client is running locally and full screen, and you authenticate and it connects you to a remote full screen desktop (but with the capability for the reverse-seamless style access to local apps).

For the "Remote" edition which is the web-browser version, it's just full desktop unless you have TS 2008 or citrix or whatever.
