I've never used such hardware, but a common
cost saving approach is to keep the older
machines and use something like
LTSP or PXES to run a diskless client.
I've used PXES with rdesktop and it works very well.
rdesktop with Windows is much better performance
and quality than something like VNC.
I prefer PXES over LTSP since there is no NFS
mount required. Just need enough memory on
the client to keep a good sized file system in RAM
(512 MB is lots).
Very strange to see a functional Win 2003 server
desktop filling the screen of a Sun.
