They're much more pleasant than the traditional X11 experience.  Apps 
that don't expect to be remoted are better behaved.  Audio and USB disks 
are basically seamless.

The server software is a pain.

For the older SPARC-based Sun Rays (1, 1G, 100, 150, etc) you need SRSS 
3.x.  This hypothetically runs on Linux but it was very unpleasant even 
when new: lots and lots of moving pieces.  It's much easier on Solaris.

The newer MIPS? ARM? units require SRSS 4.x.  This is actively 
maintained and I have never experimented with it.
