Don't worry about kde or gnome Desktop. After Skolelinux is installed
you can install Gnome 2.2 backported packages. I am using it actually
with 3 thin clients - connected with a 10Mbs link - open to public
access to browse in our library database and in the Internet, and so far
so good.

What Markus said about Gnome been not kind with X traffic was true with
version of Gnome < 2.0. A lot of effort has been done in this area

However I have not conducted test in large scale area with Gnome 2.2 in
production. If you can do so and let us know about it, it will be a very
valuable contribution. But may be some other users have done so (Klaus
Johnstad ?)
