"Author Jim McQuillan of the Linux Terminal Server Project takes a look at the potent combination of Linux and thin client computing. Thin clients have the potential to save money in terms of both hardware and software, while users take advantage of a "write once, run anywhere" technology. Initially, thin clients faced several problems, but many of these have been overcome, and the future is more promising. Jim and co-authors Ron Colcernian and Bill Allie look briefly at the history of thin clients, their current resurgence, and a few case studies. The authors highlight some important keys to the success of thin clients, and provide useful resources to the reader."
