Good luck

by JamesRL In reply to interesting article.

It would require an interesting amount of programming to allow user to install their own "valid" apps, and block invalid ones.

The only way might be to have a program which allows "approved" apps on an updatable list to be installed, but nothing else.

The real answer to this is to use thin clients and terminal servers to run any and all business applications. On a server you can much more easily control the user's desktop environment. That way even if they do load something funky on their local PC, it won't affect their ability to do their job. If there is a problem, just reghost the disk, and let them log back on to their terminal session where all of their apps are waiting.
