LTSP facinates me, and I can reckon use scenarios starting in Fall; in the meantime, I'm not able to test the server.
The Linux Terminal Server Project adds thin-client support to Linux servers. LTSP is a flexible, cost effective solution that is empowering schools, businesses, and organizations all over the world to easily install and deploy desktop workstations. A growing number of Linux distributions include LTSP out-of-the-box.
Shiny new thin-clients and legacy PCs alike can be used to browse the Web, send e-mail, create documents, and run other desktop applications. LTSP not only improves Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), but more importantly, provides increased value over traditional computing solutions. LTSP workstations can run applications from Linux and Windows servers.
Linux thin-clients have proven to be extremely reliable because tampering and viruses are virtually non-existent. It's distributed under the GNU General Public License, meaning it's free and always will be.
You'll find that LTSP has comprehensive free and professional support, and it's developed by a very active global community.
Does this seem like a viable patch project? Build notes from Core 11.1 to follow.
