Yes the big win with thin clients is that one install is all you need 
for the 25 seats and there's not much you can do from the terminals to 
break it.  However, you would need something like a dual xeon server 
with 4 gigs of RAM to act as the server.  If you have to go with 
standalone workstations, you'll probably want some fast image-based 
cloning method to install and maintain them. Clonezilla is pretty good 
for that: http://www.clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live/.
