Woke up this morning and had an email from a friend asking me:
What additional functionality is provided by having a single user CAL for Remote Desktop Services as opposed to just using the default remote desktop single non-concurrent user service?
And my brain just went huh? Its too early ask me later.
So thought there is probably someone smart on here that is more awake than me to answer this.

CAL is just a licence and stands for client access license. That will not allow anymore than using RDP into your PC....Desktops do not have terminal services so only 1 user at a time!

There is of course a hack to allow multiple sessions!...
