On top of this:
sign on to the same desktop, no matter what workstation you use, is built in
Diskless computing is built in,
extending client hardware life from "rather short" to nearly endless is
And if a workstation hardware fails, just use the next bootable
workstation (min 500hz cpu, 256mb recommended) and on you go with your work.
No need anymore to touch individual workstations. Simply forget about them.
All the work is done on the server(s) and this will surely simplify
backup, as well.
Yet there are lots of possibilities to use local client ressources.
