Microsoft's MultiPoint Threat -- Multiseat Linux Desktop Virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| Userful Corporation, the world leader in 
| multiseat Linux, today announced the release of 
| Userful Multiplier V.3.7, the latest version of 
| their software which turns 1 PC into 10. Demand 
| for its $69 virtual desktops (education 
| pricing, includes the software and multiseat 
| hardware) has accelerated as budget-strapped 
| governments, educational organizations, and 
| businesses turn to Userful to lower costs. The 
| improvements brought with V.3.7 will bring the 
| benefits of Userful's desktop virtualization to 
| even more users around the world.



Proper Multi-Seat X Support Is On The Way

,----[ Quote ]
| While multi-seat computing has been available on Linux for years, it's often
| been a chore to setup and required some time. Beyond just being time
| consuming and an unnecessary hassle, the way of setting up a multi-seat
| computer through an X Server with multiple nested Xephyr servers is not
| pleasant. There have been several attempts at improving the multi-seat Linux
| experience by creating a multi-seat display manager and taking various other
| steps, but to date this is still a challenge to setup. The good news though
| is that this may soon change.



The Multi-Seat Display Manager

,----[ Quote ]
| For those interested in configuring a multi-seat system with multiple
| monitors, keyboards, and mice, they can build the Multi-Seat Display Manager
| from git, use the provided Debian packages, or try out their Ubuntu 8.04
| LiveCD with MDM pre-installed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
