Yup, it does! I've measured 73Mb/sec on my Cisco Catalyst switch with
TuxType and similar numbers with TuxMath. Got similar numbers from the
ifconfig and a stopwatch. That's why you need 100Mbps/FullDuplex on
your clients, Gig-E on your server, and a clean, error-free network.
X11 is a wonderful protocol that allows LTSP to exist in the first
place, but heavy screen updates do eat up bandwidth.
