Subject: [roselug] September Meeting: Linux Terminal Server Project


The Roseville Linux Users Group will be holding a meeting on:
	Thursday, September 29th, 2005.  6:30p-9p
the topic will be:
	The Linux Terminal Server Project, presented by Steve Hargadon

** Please note our modified meeting date this month **


BACKGROUND:

  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 has recently completed installations of K12LTSP at
  schools in Hawaii, Utah, California, and Indiana.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

  Steve Hargadon has installed K12LTSP in schools in Hawaii, California,
  Utah, and Illinois.  Most recently he created a linux-based humanitarian
  aid project for refugee shelters after the Katrina Hurricane called
  PublicWebStations.com, which was featured on ABCnews.com.  His
  company, Hargadon Computer, Inc., also sells K12LTSP pre-installed
  servers and refurbished (recycled) workstations at www.technologyrescue.com.


 Paul.
