If your using workstations that are a too powerful to be a thin client,
take a look at AFS (http://www.openafs.com). It's a distributed
filesystem, so you could have the workstations booting up from PXE,
mounting the AFS filesystem and using the local hard disk as a cache (so
instead of getting programs from the network it uses the local disk).
This way you can get thin client maintenance but fat client performance.
