The LTSP is all about running thin client computers in a GNU/Linux environment."  Converts minimal old PC's with no disks and bootable network cards to thin linux clients.  Good for cheap used gear, should require less power as well.  Happy user in Philippines reported in Jan 2003.  Full manual available in English, Spanish, 3 other languages.  1:50:37 PM  permalink
