[school-discuss] thin clients per server
We are looking to replace a school lab full of standalone PCs (Dell
1.6ghz Celerons) with LTSP. I'm wondering what a good client to server
ratio would be using something along the lines of a Athlon64 3200 with
a 10k SATA drive for the server. Mind you that we may have all the kids
hitting Flash driven web sites at the same time and performance
shouldn't look shabby compared to the stand alones.
The lab is the first step to converting the rest of the school.
Also, any perceptible difference in using, say 533mhz Via Eden
motherboards for the clients vs. 1 ghz Edens?
Many thanks in advance.
