Session

Building an Extremely Mobile Thin Client Laptop
Frederic Descamps, Senior Consultant, X-Tend

Track: Linux
Date: Tuesday, 18 October 2005
Time: 10:45 - 11:30
Location: Grand Ballroom

Everybody knows ThinClients; everybody claims to be using Linux on the destkop. This presentation teaches the audience how one of Descamps' customers made the transition to a fully mobile ThinClient environment using a dedicated Thin Linux on an extremely connected Laptop.

Thin Linux means that there is no harddisk in the laptops, and the whole environment runs from a small flash disk. An extremely connected laptop can be connected to the Internet by almost any connection type one can imagine: Wifi, Cable, GPRS etc.

Descamps discusses the integration of OpenOffice and Firefox environments on minimal diskspace, including the deployment and upgrade techniques for roadwarriors. His presentation documents both the technical as well as organizational and management aspects of this deployment.
