The number of emails with the subject “desktop virtualization” is increasing. All of them asking for a “one virtual machine for one user” model. A terminal server normally can handle more than one user on one machine and linux really has great tools to respect different wishes of different users on one system. With limits you can control the cpu usage etc…
Surly you can use both models with x2go and yes – we are working on virtual machine integration – but: is a terminal server a valid solution for desktop virtualisation?
