Re: [K12OSN] Life after LTSP



Keep in mind, LTSP is multi-dimensional, as well. We have the ability to run:

1. All apps on the server
2. Most apps on the server, some on the client (localapps)
3. Most apps on the client, some on the server (fat client + remote apps)
4. All apps on the client (remote apps)

We also have the ability to:
1. Connect to the boot server for applications
2. Connect to a load balancer-managed app server (LTSP cluster)
3. Connect to a dedicated remote server for app server
4. Connect to a VM

Along with the ability to do so with:
1. LDM (X-over-ssh)
2. XDMCP
3. NX
4. Your desired protocol here ....

And most of what we work on is making all of this simpler to set up.
So, while we may see in many countries a gradual decline in the use of
LTSP as a single server that connects low-end clients to itself to run
all applications, that does not mean that LTSP will go away, because
LTSP is not a one-dimensional project.

Plus, we have way too much fun as devs getting together in Southwest
Harbor, Maine every year to code and drink beer. :)

Here's a toast to the freedom to use LTSP as you need!
