It seems to me that a RISC OS user aimed distibution of Linux might go a long way to solving our problems with applications.

What I'm thinking of would be a live CD that would make the PC act as a thin client application server. (A Home server for RISC OS)

For example If you VNC'd to a certain display you get open office for example, which would save its work to the moonfish share on the RISC OS client. Another display would give firefox.

(The Server could also act as NAS and a router if needed.)
