At the moment I am looking for a tool that could be described as a cross-over between Desktops and NetExec. I'm convinced actual power users here will have fond memories of NetExec when it was still in its prime (i.e. in the pre-Windows-Vista era). So what I am looking for is a tool that allows me to specify the credentials for the user account as which the new desktop is to be created and is able to start a shell in those additional desktops the way Desktops does it and NetExec did it up to Windows 2003 Server.

Does anyone know such a tool or can you suggest an alternative that doesn't involve the RDP protocol?

@ChrisF and others: anyone care to share the reason why this is deemed off topic? Especially since both Desktops and NetExec are literally only used by power users. – 0xC0000022L Apr 6 '13 at 6:20
That was an interesting question I had expected to find an answer as well... That's strange it was closed as off-topic :( – AntonK Sep 20 '13 at 20:14
@AntonK: I'm still looking for an answer myself, but I've long since stopped hoping this is the right place. Some intriguing and difficult questions never make it on SE because of a few who don't even have the grace to point out the reasons for seemingly arbitrary decisions (I.e. closing without comment). – 0xC0000022L Sep 20 '13 at 20:48
