    I've setup one with rdesktop installed so you can RDP to a Windows machine and it worked fine. I haven't set one up solely as a thin client though. I would be interested in anything where someone has too.......

    I'd say compare your opportunity cost to grabbing 3 Wyse/HP/whoever thin clients off eBay.

    But if you're doing it solely as an excuse for geeky project fun, see: Raspberry Pi Thin Client project: Citrix Receiver Client test on XenApp server and google Berryterminal.
