| Linux-compatible real-time Java virtual machine (JVM), targeting multi-core

Debian Etch on The Self-Reliant Thin Client

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm running what I call The Self-Reliant Thin Client on Debian Etch, a
| GNU/Linux distribution I haven't run intensively in quite some time. I also
| recently installed the PowerPC build of Etch on my Power Macintosh G4/466,
| but I've been using the converted thin client almost exclusively since I
| built it last week using an 8 GB Compact Flash module as the system's sole
| hard drive.


Sustainable computing for the masses

| 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).


Poor nations gain more choices in computing

| The NComputing system cuts costs tremendously. The cost per child of each
| NComputing system, for seven users, is $70 each, in a system running at just
| 1 watt per user.



Dumb terminals provide smart solution

| 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.
