Too often I get bogged down in the technical details of a new technology, spend an age learning and figuring out how thing will run best in an enterprise environment when sometimes its just time to have some fun! Lets do that with Turbo Containers!

I have recently been working with a great technology called Turbo and been creating and running amazing containerised applications to run on a Citrix XenDesktop 7.8 environment.  With that in mind I thought it was time to have a little fun!

Being the age I am a lot of my professional life was spent on a Windows XP desktop.  Whilst this is now out of support there are some great things that this operating system had to let us have some fun!  One of those things was 3D Space Cadet Pinball!

I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent playing this game – it really is addictive!

So, with that in mind I have created a Turbo container for it.  You can find it here.

If you want to know more about creating Turbo containers please have a read of my blog post on creating a custom container for Turbo

So, with an enterprise environment in mind we have to think of the use cases for Space Cadet 3D Pinball.

Why not put the Turbo container into a Citrix XenDesktop 7.8 AppDisk and deploy it to all your machine catalogs, this way all your staff can enjoy a little bit of downtime whilst using a secure, easy to deliver, multi platform game in a container.

Login to your XenDesktop 7.8 server and run

turbo –subscribe –all-users <org-name>

sync turbo

Your Pinball container should be available

app available

Click the icon and go and have some fun!

Or better still, publish it as a seamless application and run it direct from Citrix StoreFront :o)

Thanks Turbo!
