Yes it does. With cloned vm and memory ballooning it's no more disk  little more ram use than ltsp and can scale across multiple servers. It also totally isolates each user vm from others. So a fork bomb only crashes one vm and not all thin clients. Middle school found out how to do that. Fixing it in ltsp was a challenge. In vm, it's only their problem.

Or have you done it in a

Used ltsp in Atlanta for 7 school build out of 2000 clients on 33 servers in 2006-2007. That hard coded clients to a server. It that server was down, all computer use stopped. With the ovirt process, the VMs can run on a different server automatically until the down server is restored and clients migrated live.

X2go issues are current.
