Via Slashdot: version 5.2 of LTSP is out. Seemingly, new features include better "fat-client" performance, allowing you to run some applications client-side.
It sounds like LTSP is basically now a network-bootable OS that can connect to Windows Terminal Services machines, Linux X sessions, 2X servers and so on, and be capable of running a web browser client-side, too. Does anyone have any experience in getting LTSP set up as above? I have a room of Edubuntu thin clients running, but that was just me following the instructions - how do I get a client-side web browser with Flash and PDF viewers going? If I can get that bootable (at a reasonable load time) over the network then I just need to plug in a couple of TS servers, pay for TS and MS Office CALS, then chuck all our PC's harddrives away and have them all boot off the network...
