It could be the lack of awareness problem rather than the lack of inertia. Some people still tout Open Office as a replacement for M$ office!Tom Potts wrote:http://www.networkworld.com/weblogs/smb/2006/012903.html Tom te tom te tomI have to laugh, I identified LTSP thin client as a solution to the silicon mountain / digital divide problem before K12LTSP was a distribution. Things overtook my project and we ended up using K12LTSP distribution for a school in the Philippines, and now in the Cameroon telecentre as well. But it always astounds me how many people "discover" K12LTSP as a new and exciting alterative when K12LTSP has been around for 5 years or so to my memory and LTSP for much much longer. In fact the concept of displaying programs output from remote terminals or rather the concept of initiating programs on remote servers via graphical work stations is as old as X (windows). What does it take to wake these people up !!! Sometimes I think that inertia is the only universal constant. :-) Tom.
However on the inertia side I think I should really practice a few set-ups on this so next time I can just show someone rather than tell them about it!
Tom te tom te tom - I think I might like this one....
