NewsForge: Linux Terminal Server Project Releases 4.2

“The Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP), which makes it easy
to connect thin client terminals to a Linux server, announced the
4.2 release of the software at the LinuxWorld Conference &
Expo. The new release adds improved local device support, reduces
memory requirements, and offers scanner and multi-head support and
a 2.6 kernel.

“With improved local device support, users can plug in USB flash

experience as a normal desktop machine…”
