The "Best" Thin Client? no comment on the value judgment in the title, but this anecdote in a slashdot comment details one school district's solution for supporting multiple platforms. the five-second summary: they plan to run file, print and directory services on xserves, windows-specific apps on windows terminal server systems and linux and x11 stuff with the linux terminal server project. all of this gets accessed via emac thin clients. the end result? $599 systems that can run mac, windows and linux apps at reasonable speeds and can be centrally managed. ain't that leibnizian?@
