Excellent Article at Heise on LTSP

see TFA.

TFA is concise, well-written and gives tons of links to further information about LTSP, the Linux Terminal Server Project, which is a great solution for extending the power of a newer PC or server and for centrally managing PCs at home, school or in business.

I first used LTSP in 2003 as implemented in the distro, K12LTSP. The LTSP team, and several distros have turned this combination of x-window-system, DHCP/BootP/TFTP/NFS into a means of booting diskless clients. This saves thousands of dollars in capital costs for even a small installation and lightens the load on the system administrator by a large factor.
