Great! Which cluster-aware file system do you plan to use on top of LVM?

uhm... I feel like you are not comfortable with discussion here (this
mysterious product V2). Can I ask you some more details about this on
private email?

I will, as i said, this is my test environment :) The main problem is, I
have to prove this solution worth spending money to my manager - then i
can get some funds :(

Hmm... I didn't know that- i am a newbie in this topic. Thank you for
your input. Looks like i will follow this path with TS.
	I do not follow microsoft's products (i use them only if I am forced to
do so). Is there TS which serves "desktops" which looks like winXP?

Anything wrong with RDP?

I will take a look at this.
