The issues for F14 - does this suggest that working F13 LTSP servers
shouldn't be upgraded either?
K12LTSP is one of the better things I've spent time with in my life. It
bettered the life of hundreds of school kids that I was involved with
and saved my wife's practice a lot of time and money.
I still think LTSP or the similar concept is an extremely viable concept
and has more uses than most people imagine.
