The computer science department in the university where I study has
a bunch of Windows TS boxes. Clients are some old 486 PCs using the DOS
client, and also NCD X terminals using the Citrix client (with MetaFrame
on the terminal server machines) -- works quite well. There's a linux
client for MetaFrame too which I have used.
