12.5. Summary

By keeping the computers most people use simple and placing most programs on remote GUI login servers, you can reduce your overall computing costs and reduce your total administrative effort. Using such thin clients does impose certain needs, though; although the thin client computers themselves can be simple, they require more powerful login servers and better network infrastructure than you'd otherwise need. Linux can play a role in thin client computing as an operating system with which you can turn outdated desktop systems into thin clients, as the server the end users log into, or both.
