[seul-edu] Linux in education report #95 for May 5

It's here:


Malcolm Smith reminded us of XASS, and what it's intended to do. As he puts it:

If you have multiple servers, these can be used to host graphical, X11 applications that are displayed on a large number of clients. XASS means that the client will request an application to be run on any of the servers, without being tied to a specific one. Loadbalancing code should (theoretically) ensure much more efficient resource utilisation, as a server that is fast to respond and doing relatively little will be used in preference to one that takes a long time to respond or is busy.

We can see where this could be very useful in a scholastic environment.
