The meeting will be held at our regular location:

The topic will be:

  K12LTSP - Linux Terminal Server Project
  presented by: Steve Hargadon, Hargadon Computer, Inc.

    The Linux Terminal Server Project is an add-on package for Linux
    that allows numerous low-powered 'thin client' terminals to connect to
    a Linux server.  Applications then run on the server, while accepting
    input and displaying output on the thin clients.  An office or computer
    lab can be constructed using one powerful server, and many inexpensive
    thin clients -- old PCs, for example.  Configuration and upgrades are
    then centralized at the server, rather than distributed to numerous
    expensive desktops.

    K12LTSP, a popular solution for schools with limited budgets, is a
    distribution of Linux based on RedHat Fedora and the LTSP packages.
    Steve Hargadon recently completed an installation of K12LTSP
    at a charter school in Hawaii, and is currently working with the
    Canadian government to install thin client labs in 2,000 schools
    in Kenya, Africa.
