A. SourceForge has released Thinstation, a free Linux distribution that runs on any x86 box that has at least 16MB of RAM. Thinstation supports the following protocols:

  • Windows Terminal Services (RDP)
  • Citrix ICA
  • X-Terminal (XDM)
  • TightVNC
  • Secure Shell (SSH)
  • Telnet
  • Tarantella

The software lets you run thin-client sessions on older systems, giving your users access to the latest applications and helping you get a few more years of service out of your machines. Additional information about Thinstation is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/thinstation.
