[K12OSN] Springfield, IL: Demonstration of K12LTSP/LTSP, May 24



Next Tuesday, May 24th at the Linux Users of Central Illinois (www.luci.org):

The Linux Terminal Server Project is an add-on package for Linux
allowing numerous low-powered "thin client" terminals (or recycled computers)
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 Red Hat Fedora and the LTSP
packages. Steve Hargadon has installed K12LTSP in Hawaii, California,
Utah, and Indiana.  He is currently working with the Canadian
government to install thin client labs in 2,000 schools in Kenya,
Africa.
