 Linux thin clients

"Thin clients -- also known as diskless workstations, network computers, and network computing appliances -- are simple, robust embedded systems that use various networking protocols to enable local users to run applications on powerful remote servers. Since they are embedded, often solid-state systems (no moving parts), thin clients are said to require less maintenance and enjoy a longer usable lifespan than traditional "fat" clients, or PC desktops.
