 Linux X-Terminal with Debian

"X-terminals take advantage of the fact that the X protocol cleanly distinguishes between X clients and X servers. The idea is you run all your X clients (KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice, etc.) in a transparent manner on a powerful computer and simply use a slow computer (the X server or X-terminal) to display the results and control that display with keyboard and mouse. This idea is especially compelling if you have some Linux experience and access to an old PC which you can convert to an X-terminal."
