We (a couple friends and me) need diskless clients because we'll use a 
computer Lab that we don't own. It doesn't make sense to install software 
on them if we will only use them once or twice. What's more, if we leave 
the windows machines untouched the chances of using the same 
machines some other day increases...

Best regards,
