Replacing Citrix + Windows with Linux


We have an installation using Citrix on 6 Window server machines with up to 500 users in a remote desktop configuration. The user mostly use web based applications (in a browser, often with java applet) and a couple windows applications.

We are looking for an alternative solution, not using Windows/Citrix

One idea is to use VNC clients + wine on Linux server.

How would such solution compare to the Windows/Citrix solution in terms of:
Reliability
Performance
Compatibility
Manageability

Are there other alternatives to consider

Compatibility can be a problem. I have had relatively little luck getting Citrix dependent web based applications running under Wine.
