I think an interesting variation would be a way to boot a laptop into 
the NX client (locally, doesn't matter much how or what OS underneath), 
and then log into a freenx desktop session that would be essentially the 
same as a thin client but with good remote/wireless performance at least 
for everything short of streaming video.  You could probably do this 
from a live-cd so as not to have per-machine installs.  Or if the client 
already has a working OS, just install NX.
