Can you please tell me or point to some documentation how can I put =
native applications into the OS image, or I somewhere else, so that they =
are executed natively, without RPC. Also, how is it possible to increase =
the speed of OS in overall? Currently it takes a while until I get for =
example logged in or until I get FireFox or Mouse Management windows =
open. I don't know maybe it's because of I did something wrong, but do =
you have any idea why? Also I get OS crashes. For example I opened =
FireFox, navigated to "yahoo.com" then it suddenly stuck, was not =
responding when I tried to change the address in the address bar, though =
other buttons were working, and then after a minute FF terminated by =
throwing an exception and after all other progs terminated (Multi =
Monitor ,...). Is this because of instability or what?

Our OS is based on Ubuntu, not on tcosproject. Thanks for pointing us to =
them - we didn't even know that this project existed. I guess, we'll =
have a look at what they have to offer. In fact, openthinclient.org once =
had an internal working title of TCOS - which would have created a mess, =
hadn't we changed the name.
Being able to run third-party applications is one of main goals of =
openthinclient. We already integrated a number of applications to run =
"natively", i.e. directly on the client, for our ThinClient OS, e.g. the =
GUI for the SAP ERP system, document management clients and others.
In order to run applications on the ThinClient there are several =
options. Some simple applications may be run in a quick-and-dirty way by =
making them available from a user's hone directory. However, we are =
currently in the process of making our package build environment =
available, so that other users can build proper packages, which can then =
be installed using the package manager. The progress of this effort is =
tracked here: https://issues.openthinclient.org/otc/browse/SUITE-27. Add =
