I'm not one of the technical experts on the list, but I use rdesktop
every day from LTSP, connecting to a Window's server with
Quickbooks...  I'm sure I'm not alone.

The only issue I have encountered is that the Linux Terminal Server
client doesn't support sound, which I think Windows 2003 with RDP5
does.  But I don't need the sound, so it works great for me.
