Deploying Linux on the Desktop with LTSP
Jim McQuillan, Founder, Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP)

Track: Linux
Date: Thursday, July 29
Time: 11:35am - 12:20pm
Location: Salon D


Corporations large and small are actively installing Linux on the desktop all over the world. LTSP simplifies this task by providing Thin Client support to Linux. This results in a very robust environment, minimizing costs and deployment time, allowing you to spend more time addressing real business issues.

In addition to supporting new state-of-the-art Thin client computers, LTSP also allows you to re-use older computers as thin clients, thereby extending the life of those computers.

This session provides an introduction to LTSP, an overview of the new features in LTSP-4, and case studies showing how corporations have saved substantial amounts of money by deploying Linux with LTSP compared with traditional PCs running Windows.
