What model would best replace Twinax display stations giving users a more seemless transition?

Why would someone consider the Linux-based terminal?
The three main justifications for the "LBT" are: users of Notes/Domino who want an alternative to costly PC's and still deliver e-mail, Calandaring, and Things to Do (with the Domino Server Web-enabled), need to size windows on the screen to see mutiple sessions running, and the desire for the Netscape Navigator browser verses the MS Internet Explorer that comes on the Windows CE browser-based models.

Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server Edition or Window 2000 server need to be running to use the RDP or ICA (Citrix) clients that come standard with the YEStation.

It comes with a limited three-year warranty to the original purchaser (overnight replacement)

Do I need Citrix software installed on the server to run Windows applications with the YEStation?
Although adding Citrix to NT 4.0 TSE or Windows 2000 Server greatly enhances performance for remote dial-in, audio, and over a Wide Area Network (WAN), it is not required to run Windows applications (i.e. MS Office).

What model is most appropriate in a Microsoft Windows 2000 Terminal Services or Citrix only environment?
