Re: [K12OSN] Where is K12LTSP at?



What has been your experience with DRBL for the following:

1. Boot time
2. Reliability
3. Scalability - as in how many TCs have you seen running simultaneously one one server? Server specs.?
4. TC performance compared to LTSP and stand-alone workstation

Keep in mind that if you use DRBL, then your support extends across
multiple distributions that will last well beyond 2014.  You can run
DRBL on Fedora or Centos, as well as Ubuntu or Debian.  I can boot my
newer gbook, asus eeepc, acer aspire, and various Atom-based chipsets
from it, as well as my ancient hardware.
