    1. Chris Parker says:

      Don’t know if they have a plan for RDP but if you consider Microsoft’s path over the last 5 years you might not be too surprised.

      The standard install for Server is “core”. In fact, they don’t even call it core anymore. It’s just Windows Server. The non-standard version is Server with Desktop Experience.

      Remote management is the future and there are lots of tools that manage multiple RDP sessions well. Honolulu doesn’t need it. Heck, Honolulu even lets you run PowerShell on the machine from the web GUI itself.

      The more I think about your comment the more annoying it is… You’ve just seen an incredible tool and all you have to say is “RDP not available?” Holy smokes that’s some short-sighted thinking.

    2. We’ve heard from many customers that RDP is a top request and are currently developing this feature. If you’d like to add your vote or suggest other features, please do so on our UserVoice page at https://aka.ms/HonoluluFeedback.
