K12LTSP - Linux Terminal Server Project
presented by: Steve Hargadon, Hargadon Computer, Inc.
The Linux Terminal Server Project is an add-on package for Linux
that allows numerous low-powered 'thin client' terminals to connect to
a Linux server. Applications then run on the server, while accepting
input and displaying output on the thin clients. An office or computer
lab can be constructed using one powerful server, and many inexpensive
thin clients -- old PCs, for example. Configuration and upgrades are
then centralized at the server, rather than distributed to numerous
K12LTSP, a popular solution for schools with limited budgets, is a
distribution of Linux based on RedHat Fedora and the LTSP packages.
Steve Hargadon recently completed an installation of K12LTSP
at a charter school in Hawaii, and is currently working with the
Canadian government to install thin client labs in 2,000 schools
in Kenya, Africa.
