I think they probably started this a while ago.  And the bulk of LTSP relates 
to the remote-booting of the clients running X - these guys seem to use 
dedicated terminals for this, so they probably wouldnt benefit so much.

I recall an article some time back that looked in-depth at the structure of 
this system.  (google will probably help there).  The main thing that I 
recall is that they use a single server to serve a KDE desktop, but when 
users start certain apps they use rsh to start them on a different server - 
so they have specific "application servers" to run certain apps.
