I've used 2X Thin Client Server for years, but now they have ended their opensource solution, so i wonder if anyone has found a good alternative?

We have started working on switching from our 2X Thin Client Servers to LTSP. It does take more work to get setup right, but you have a lot more flexibility.

LTSP installation on Ubuntu is dead easy - stick two network cards in a server, choose the "Install an LTSP server" option from the alternate install CD, done. – David Hicks Nov 12 '09 at 18:13
@David, I agree ltps is easy under Ubuntu, but doing some of the things 2X allows you to do within LTSP is a bit tricky. – Zoredache Nov 12 '09 at 19:47
