Hello experts,

I work at a k-8 school and we are looking to upgrade pretty much all of our computers, but we are on a tight budget.  I was looking around and it looks like desktop virtualization is the next big thing these days and it also looks like there is potential money savings involved.  The two solutions that I've been looking at are Windows MultiPoint Server and Userful (either Desktop or MultiPlatform).  Are there any others worth checking out?  Can anyone recommend a good one?  A cheap one?  Basically, the students do online learning games, web browsing, and word processing.  We have a lab of about 30 computers and each classroom has between 2-4 computers.  We don't have enough money to buy new computers all around, but we need to do something because the computers we are using are going on 10 years old and are very slow.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
