I can second the enthusiasm for terminal servers, I find them
a great solution. But this last note needs comment...

There are Linux based terminal server solutions that will run
windows apps in Wine - even to the extent of supporting RDP
and ICA clients. We tried it at a client of mine and it does
work! There were issues (font matching and occassional
glitches with Wine) but with more time I am sure it could have
been done with reasonable satisfaction - and without rewriting
the application (may have needed some adjustments to work in
with Wine). This particular client dropped it because it was
taking so much time to sort out and other priorities arose.
