LTSP 2.08 is a capable open-source application that provides terminal services and centralized computing for thin clients from a Linux server. Its economical and straightforward to set up and administer. More importantly, it provides a good reason for companies small and large to consider Linux on the desktop.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // LTSPs economical approach to back-end computing gives companies the ability to migrate to centralized computing with very little cost (beyond training in Linux) or risk.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // As familiarity with a Linux-based, centralized desktop administration scheme grows, companies will have an easier time getting more employees to give up their fat-client PCs, saving more money in the process.

Easy to install and use; very economical; centrally administered.

Terminal server represents a potential single point of failure; Windows-centric users and administrators will need training.
