The thin client itself is pretty much useless without connecting to a server that provides either virtualized applications or virtual desktops. Citrix and VMWare are currently the leaders (in my opinion) in the desktop virtualization space.

You dont' even need virtualized applications to use a thin client. Just a pxe boot network card and a properly configured x-server and you have yourself full client capabilities. I've worked on a project in school called "Linux terminal server project (LTSP)" and that's one example of a non-virtualized aspect of thin-client usage.
