Thin Client Server

http://www.2x.com/thinclientserver/thinclsrvfeatures.html

It's free, if you don't use the additional management server.

Go to http://www.2x.com/ccos and instantly install your FREE personal 2X CloudClient operating system on a USB stick no larger than 512 MB. Your portable cloud client operating system can then be run from any computer that can boot from a USB device, allowing you to instantly connect to hosted virtual desktop, applications, like eg. Google Apps, Mirosoft HyperV or VMWare. It's your own personal cloud client that you can carry in your pocket.
