Linux virtual desktops sweeping Brazilian schools

Canada-based Userful and ThinNetworks of Brazil have been selected to supply 356,800 virtual desktops to schools across Brazil.

Userful's Multiplier allows one PC to drive 10 user desktops through inexpensive video cards and USB hubs.

The idea is that a modern PC wastes much of its processing power when running typical applications. Sharing this resource between several users reduces the average cost while still delivering adequate performance for many purposes.

The story is too old to be commented.
