I use Ubuntu. I install the server edition so I get a text console.  If 
you install the Workstation, then you get a gui console. It might be no 
big deal but that's what I prefer.  The server edition doesn't come with 
X proper, so I run `sudo apt-get install xclock` and it pulls in all of 
X.


If you're really counting megabits then learn ye vnc 
(vncserver/vncviewer).

I use/support 6000 boxes.  (Is it really a lan when you use all of 10/8 
?) Most of the time I use ssh, but when I need to run our store's app, I 
use vnc, which gives me a remote desktop that is fast.
X is a pig is a pig is a pig. Wait, let me say that again. X-is-a-pig-
is-a-p
uh! autowrap, I'll need to redraw. But first I have to unload my buffer.
ig-is-a-pig.
X-is-a-pig-(don't move your mouse!)is-pig-is-a-pig.
