RE: [K12OSN] RE: [Ltsp-discuss] What distribution should I use?



What makes Ubuntu a better OS than something like Fedora?  I am getting
ready to roll out 8 new Linux based servers and am trying to decide on
the OS.  We do and will be using thinclients at each school.  The labs
that I have setup so far have all been using K12LTSP with Fedora.

Thanks,

Ron
