Linux thin client etc.
Posted on 2000-02-16
Does anyone have information on thin client systems with Linux as the application server. I've checked out thinworks, and igelusa, but I just can't figure out if they could do what I'd like them to do which is : Can I run a thin client system, with Linux as the server, but still give users access to MSOffice apps? I would like it to be totally thin, so I really wouldn't want Office installed locally. My dilemma is that NT Terminal Server + Citrix are way too expensive, and well Microsoft sucks at whatever they make, but people are hard pressed to give up their MS Office Apps. I know about Staroffice and Applix, but the resistance is way too strong :) Any compromises or solutions?
