Thin clients are a great way to repurpose older PCs or get cheaper systems and still get a powerful network of workstations for schools or institutions with many different cubicles/offices for a fraction of the cost, both in cash, time and staff invested in its deploying and maintenance. However, just like any other computer, there are details that have to be worked out here and there. Tonight I'll give a tip about a particular implementation: LTSP plus Windows virtual machines with concurrent sessions over RDP (tested with Ubuntu 12.04 as a base OS and Windows 7 Ultimate as guest OS under Virtualbox).

Hello there, my name is Aderis Kyle Drago, or just Aderis. I've joined Boxedfoxsoft as a jack-of-all-trades member, the local Spanish speaker, a programming apprentice and a bit of an artist.
I've been working with computers since I was 12 years old, when I disassembled my very first computer (an Acer 486SX) only one month after getting it. Since then, I've spent these years learning what I can by myself.
In my free time I fix computers and sometimes write some literature. I've been an avid fan of RPG games of all kinds, and I am planning to make my own fantasy Action RPG.
It's a short introduction, but I hope you'll get to know me more and I get more and more involved. I shall see you in our forums.
