LTSP Saves Old Hardware in Brazilian Doctor’s Office

“Integrated Neurology Service SINEURO’s office, located in
São Paulo, Brazil, migrated from various versions of Windows
(from 98 to XP) on a network of five computers with eight
nonskilled computer users. I was the consultant in charge, and I
spent no money on new hardware. Thank to the Linux Terminal Server
Project (LTSP), hardware that’s too old for new versions of Windows
runs Linux applications just fine over a network from a server.

“Before the move, the office had some problems with software
licensing. Piracy is a common problem in Brazil, where pirated
software can be found in big and small companies alike. Because
Linux is free, it can provide an alternative to commonly pirated
Windows software…”
