I got the impression of terminal servers rather than the cloud. For example, running Trinity in a LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) environment.

And probably a good subject to merge into the discussion about optimizing Trinity. :) In fact, optimizing Trinity for an LTSP environment would be a great way to use old PI and PII hardware. Those machines come with 10/100 network support. Trinity could be an ideal desktop for LTSP environments. :)
