BTW, if you want local apps, then I believe your thin clients must use
the same CPU architecture as your LTSP server. That is, if your LTSP
server's a Power Mac G5, then you'd need PPC thin clients to do local
apps. Likewise, an x86-based server would need x86-based clients. But
again, this is *only* in the case of running apps locally, not for the
"classic" LTSP thin client scenario.|
Do you GNU?

Ok, I have been asked to determine if it makes sense to acquire a lab of Apple Imac ( www.apple.com/imac/specs ) and then PXE boot them when they are not being used for video/audio processing classes. I know I could configure them to mount home directories for users but that is not what I'm being asked about. I'd prefer to stay with thin clients except as far as I know there aren't any simple, easy-to-use video/audio editing packages that 'just work' on thin clients. This is for grades 5-8. Perhaps the ability to run local apps with K12Linux solves this?
