[vox] K12LTSP talk at SVLUG in Mountain View, May 4th

Next Wednesday, May 4th at the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group:

The Linux Terminal Server Project is an add-on package for Linux
allowing 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
expensive desktops.

K12LTSP, a popular solution for schools with limited budgets, is a
distribution of Linux based on Red Hat 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.
