I mention these with the caveat that I've used the first two, but have no idea what is required to setup/maintain them.
The first two are generally much more useful in larger, enterprise-wide scale implementations. They more or less compete with the XenApp products from Citrix that larger companies use to provide thin client work environments for their employees rather than the relatively basic stuff the OP is going for.
