A new announcement from IBM, Canonical, and Virtual Bridges today, covered by eWeek:

Appealing to cost-constrained shops worldwide, IBM claims the virtual desktop will yield a 90 percent savings of desk-side PC support and 75 percent savings on security and user administration, not to mention 50 percent on help desk services and software installations from Microsoft-based deployments.

IBM makes other eye-popping claims about how much customers will save from software license costs, hardware upgrades and reduced power to run the configuration.
