The LTSP sub-project is intended to report tests and evaluation of in order to set-up a Linux terminal server and associated thin-client (diskless) stations in the conditions of Vietnam. This could be especially useful for schools and places, like in the countryside, where old low-resource computers still in order to function can be found but are not strong enough to run modern operating systems and softwares.
In a server and thin-client setup, users are sitting at a thin client, but they are running a session on the server. All commands they run, will be run on the server, but the output will be displayed on the thin client. Thus the server should be a strong computer (a fast CPU, lots of RAM - 256 MB for itself and 128 MB per client - and a good and robust hard disk).
You can see the result of the test with edubuntu as it was the distro we had under the hand.
It really would be interested from other if they want to join so we can more.
