Terminal Services have definitely become more common over time, but with faster and cheaper virtualization, a lot of people have switched to that instead, which would remove the problem of course.


I wonder how common it actually is, though, to *build postgres* on a terminal services machine with other users on it...

Well, the banks I've contracted at recently are all rather keen on virtual desktops for developers, and some of those are terminal services. We're a headache, and packaging up all the things we need is a pain, so there is some mileage in buying grunty servers and doing specific installs that are then shared, rather than making an MSI generally available.

Also I have experience of being given accounts for jenkins etc that are essentially terminal services logins, and having these things unable to maintain a software stack can effectively disqualify tech we would otherwise use.
