Do you use virtual desktop infrastructure?  If so, have you found it better than physical desktops?

As an advisor I get access to lots of VDI for various large companies and it’s a mixed bag. One is so good I can hardly tell it’s not my own desktop, others are so bad that the machine drops my productivity by half because I’m constantly dealing with limitations and workarounds. Like many things, you get out of VDI what you invest in it. It’s a good solution for “work anytime, anywhere” but it’s also a bit “last gen” now that everything is moving to web apps with federated auth, MFA, etc.
