My change was actually a response to your e-mail where you suggested to 
follow this through, after doing a minor change in the press release 
conserning the 3.0 release. You sugested to update the documentation. 

So to be fear, I'm a bit confused since my respons of changing file name was 
after you recomended me to update the LtspDiskless-page. 

Your reaction is on filenaming, and you use deployment argument where a 
referecne is used in a package. Then you should be clear about that, and 
keep the diskussion on that level. I don't think it's productive to scale 
things out of proportions. 

Since im not renaming the tjener to bluserver, or making changes to package 
names, I can't see why your argument apply. And "tjener" is actually a 
Norwegian lable on "server".  Here are two arguments for using the term 
LowFat, but I don't know if a renaming of a filename in a wiki-page is 

My experience when talking to hundreds of managers running "centralised" 
computer installation with hundreds and thousends of installation, is that 
using good names on solutions. Good naming helps when motivating this 
manager or head of schools to choose Skolelinux ahead of other solutions. 

It's also a case where Intel says that they most likely got no interest in 
selling thin client hardware, but that LowFat is a really nice thing, since 
you run every end user application locally. Maybe they or other HW 
manifacturor will use some marketing or salses resources promoting LowFat 
clients. And to be blunt, diskless is a really good technical term. 
Promoting that something is less, is not so positiv when reading it. 

Best regards
