NComputing: Little Box, Big Aspirations

,----[ Quote ]
| NComputing expects to sell 1 million "seats" -- the thin box that connects a
| monitor, keyboard and mouse to a nearby PC -- this year at a cost of just
| US$70 each.


40% of their hosts run GNU/Linux, so that's a lot of Free software seats. Young
children get exposed not to Windows.


Macedonia: A New Sun of Linux Freedom Rises

,----[ Quote ]
| The Republic of Macedonia is one of the poorer nations in southeastern Europe
| to come from the break-up of the former Yugoslav republic. But thanks to
| Linux, they do have the wherewithal to get a computer to every student in the
| country, thanks to a program launched in 2005 known as the "Computer for
| Every Child" (CEC) project.

| A batch of 7,000 PCs with Ubuntu Linux have been sent to Macedonian schools,
| the first of a collection that Ubuntu sponsor Canonical expects will reach
| 20,000.


All Macedonian students to use Linux desktops

| NComputing announced this week that its multi-user virtual desktop software
| and low-cost virtual PC terminals will be used to equip every school child in
| the Republic of Macedonia, formerly part of Yugoslavia, with a Linux desktop.


Sustainable computing for the masses

,----[ Quote ]
| Dukker says about 40 per cent of NComputing's customers have chosen Linux
| (the company uses Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora or SuSE) and the remainder have gone
| with Windows on the host. He is careful to specify that he has no religion
| when it comes to the operating system - it is entirely the buyer's choice.
| (Of course, if he were not offering the GNU/Linux option, then he wouldn't
| have got a run here).


Single PC powers multiple users

| NComputing's desktop virtualisation software is installed on a host personal
| computer running Windows or Linux. *


Dumb terminals provide smart solution

,----[ Quote ]
| Thin client technology is not new - it has been used widely in banking and
| sectors which want to avoid placing sensitive information on individual PCs.
| NComputing has also been deploying its technology in factories where
| operating conditions are not suitable for ordinary PCs. *
